LONG ISLAND, New York -- A lost cat returned home after missing for almost a week and alerted the family of her arrival through the doorbell camera.

Video from Stefanie Whitley and Efrain Leandry's Ring doorbell captured the moments the 8-year-old feline named Lilly returned to her Long Island, New York home back in August.

In the video, Lilly reaches over the camera and meows a few times, alerting them that someone - a furry someone - was at the door on Mastic Beach.

Whitley says the cat is familiar with how their doorbell system works.

She says Lilly looks towards the door anytime they get a notification.

"Our family was ecstatic, emotional, and hysterical when she came home," Whitley said.
