The couch was in a holding area of the thrift store.
As employees were about to move the couch, Tiny One ran out into the store. He ran around and explored a bit before letting the employees pick him up.
"This is the first time for this store and a first time for me," store manager Matthew Kemp said.
Employees were trying to figure out how to alert the owner that her cat was at the store.
"We usually give people their donation receipt and don't see them again," Kemp said. "We didn't know exactly what to think about it or do."
An employee suggested posting it to Facebook.
Arroyo saw the post and alerted her friend.
"I was like, 'Oh, my gosh, that's your cat -- you have got to call,'" Arroyo said. "'Rachel, youre cat is at the DI.'"
Barbbee came shortly after the post went up to claim her pet.
Arroyo said that despite the stress of the situation, she and her friend found humor in the situation: "It was pretty funny."
