Keryn Schuster is reunited with her pet cat, Wicket, who flew into Invercargill from Wellington last night.

Wicket went missing shortly after the Schuster family moved from Townsville, Australia, to Wellington in 2010. She was found living under a house last month.

The family would be keeping a close eye on their pet after the effort it had taken to get her to Southland, Mrs Schuster said. "We won't be letting her out the front door."

Wicket would also have to get used to living with Moccona, a 10-year-old cat the Schusters had adopted in February, she said.

Daughters Kirsty, 16, and Siobhan Schuster, 10, agreed Wicket had put on a lot of weight since they last saw her, despite living as a stray for the past three years.
