So where do lost cats go? It's one of the mysterious of the world. Equal to this mystery: How do they find their way home?
Horace, an 18-month-old ginger tabby cat was missing for nearly three weeks before he managed to limp home with two broken legs, according to the East Anglian Daily Times of England.
Owner Kara Hayward, 38, believes he was injured in a hit and run accident after going missing on March 11.
During the 3-weeks, Hayward worked diligently to at least try to sniff out her cat, from posters to contacting local shelters - and, nothing.
The Haywards and children Zak, 14, Lucas, 12, and 11-year-old Amber began to give up hope of ever seeing Horace again.
Never giving up on a lost pet is the theme of a movie called "Darling Companion" with Diane Keaton, Kevin Kline and an all star cast. Maybe there's something to that.
He had lost a lot of weight and was struggling to walk with his two broken legs.
“I saw him trying to walk and I could see that something was not right. What was obvious was that both legs were broken, so I took him to our local vets in Haughley but they said that it just does not happen, cats surviving this long, they would have given him five days, 10 days at most,” Hayward said to the Daily Times.
While in this instance Horace eventually did make it home, he's a lucky one. Please micrcohip even cats who you think might not never get out.
