In some sweet news to send you off into your long weekends, NSW Police officers have reunited a homeless man with his beloved pet rat, after she was taken from their spot last week.

Officers from the Sydney City Police Area Command reunited the pair this afternoon.

“Just after 2pm on Saturday 6 April 2019, a homeless man left his pet rat ‘Lucy’ on a milk crate on Pitt Street while he used a nearby bathroom,” NSW Police shared on Facebook. 

“A woman, who walked past and saw Lucy alone, believed she had been abandoned, so took her home and cared for her.”

In a video of the reunion, Chris immediately recognises his lil’ furry friend.

“Yep, that’s her,” The Pitt Street local told police. “That’s her. She’s got the blind eye, that’s her. She remembers me, kiss, kiss,” he said.

“Thank you, sorry to put you all through this trouble looking for her,” he added.

NSW Police also shared some extra photos from the reunion.

The wider public first became aware of Lucy’s disappearance after photos of Chris with signs about his missing friend spread across social media.

“My pet rat Lucy was stolen on Saturday. Lucy is black and white with a bit of brown,” Chris had written.

Happy Easter, friends.
