Jamie Vindis said the family was ‘blown away’ by people who had helped get Twiglet back

He wrote: ‘Everyone…we have the most amazing news…Twig is home!!

‘She’s a little subdued by the whole experience but a tip off this evening (via Facebook) from someone that had seen all of the publicity and awareness, has meant we were able to be reunited about 11pm.’

The pet owner added that he thought the media exposure had left Twiglet ‘too hot to handle’ for any thief to hang on to. 

‘We can’t thank everyone enough for all of the posts and reposts and noise that has meant that she most likely did become ‘too hot to handle.

‘We are blown away by how amazing people have been and want to thank you all so so much.’
