PASADENA, Md. (WJZ) — Losing a pet is like losing a family member — and on Friday one Anne Arundel County family was happy to be reunited with their cat, Peaches, after she was missing for three months.

Tobi Beam said she saw the skinny cat, covered in fleas, Friday morning in her back yard in Pasadena. She took the cat to the vet — thinking it was a stray — to get it spayed, but instead found out it was already spayed and had a chip.
