On April 25, two-year-old Thumki pulled away from Rachana while on a visit to the vet. Thumki, who was sick for a while, fled and despite being chased on foot and by car could not be found.

Soon enough, the family started circulating these posters of Thumki all over Facebook and their neighbourhood to search for her.

"Through the last month, we have run around Delhi, back to the same place that we lost her, to shelters and anywhere she could have possibly been," Rachana told BuzzFeed.

After all their efforts, it was this post by Myra that went viral.

33 days after she was lost, a well-wisher who saw Myra's posts pop up on his timeline spotted her outside his parents' building.

Turns out, Thumki had quite the adventure over the month away from home.

Since she was lost in a jungle on the other side of a fence that surrounded the building, their father decided to go find her while Mahi kept calling out to her from the other end. When she was found in the jungle, they saw that she had dug a pit for herself and looked a lot weaker.

To this day, Thumki is slowly recovering from the trauma of the past month. She sleeps a lot more and gets exhausted a little faster. But, she is happy.
