[WATCH] Tear jerking reunion of lost cat Kunkush with refugee family

A long and arduous journey later, an Iraqi family was tearfully reunited with their beloved cat Kunkush on Thursday, whom they lost while fleeing Iraq for Europe.

The reunion was made possible by a dedicated team of volunteers and the power of Facebook, reports Mashable.

Kunkush the cat was flown to Norway and was finally backed in the arms of his owner, who wept at his return. The family had fled from their home in Mosul, Iraq, months earlier and resettled in the Nordic country. Mosul is now controlled by Islamic State militants.

Scared Kunkush was lost when the family reached the Greek Island of Lesbos.

The Guardian recorded the moment the family held their beloved pet for the first time after he was flown from Berlin to Norway.
