This story of a lost cat that was found using a " cat scan " is sort of weird. I'm glad they found the cat but it sounds like they just about destroyed their house. :dog_laugh:

Which brings me to another topic .... lost pets. Have you ever lost one of your pets, and if so, how did you find them again?

Glad that the kitty turned out okay~ Too bad about the house though. >>

I once lost a cat... He just didn't come home one day. ;_; It's been ten years since I last saw him. My, the years just fly by...

I've had a few cats that wandered off like that, too. Sometimes they come back, sometimes not. A few are just wild at heart and love to explore.

When I was little, we had one cat that ran off as soon as brought her home. She returned about two years later.

She just walked back into your house after a 2-year absence? That's a phenomenal story. Did you ever find out where she was during her time away from the family? I'll bet you were all amazed to see her again after that length of time.

Yeah, she just showed up out of the blue one day. When we first got her she was probably about a year old and we also got her mother. My father brought both of them home together, but as soon as he gave them an opening they ran off into the nearby woods. There was no sign of either of them for a couple of years, then one day we looked out the window and there she was (eating, I think, it's been a long time). It was a big surprise for all of us.

We never saw the mother again. There's no telling where they went during those two years, but after coming back she stuck around for many years and had several litters of kittens. She never liked me all that much, but she was really friendly with my father.

I think we still have one or two of her descendants with us today.

As someone who has never owned a cat, I find that a remarkable story, including the continued presence of some of her descendants in the family home. :) Maintaining dog breed lines is much more difficult, I believe, and only dedicated breeders seem to manage it.

Continuing our theme of lost pets, I've just come across a BBC news item about the return of a missing Jack Russell terrier, Jake, almost a month after his initial disappearance. His owners witnessed him disappearing into a tunnel while chasing a rabbit. Following an exhaustive but fruitless search, the couple returned home and reported their dog missing. Three weeks went by and they had almost given up hope, when he turned up at a nearby farm, around 500 yards from the spot where they had last seen him. He appeared to be suffering from severe malnutrition.

The vet who treated him believes that Jake became trapped in an underground rabbit warren, only succeeding in escaping after he had lost a quarter of his body weight from the enforced starvation diet. Happily, he seems to have made a complete recovery and become a local celebrity.

The lesson for doggies? Don't go chasing bunnies into burrows. :yes:

Most of my cats that ran off, never came back. One who was outside was killed by a gang of dogs, and another one broke out through the screen. Luckaly I heard him meowing a few days later at midnight and when I looked outside, he was there with our neighbors female cat. (He was fixed)
