I love happy endings. :)
Neighbors spotted Hope up in a tree yesterday evening and called researchers. They were astounded that she was 2 miles away from where Lily had left her. They caught Hope and put her into a pet carrier, then easily tracked down Lily. There was concern that Lily would no longer be lactating and therefore would not take Hope back. However, she did!
