    The cat came back after walking 6 miles in 3 days

    http://ca.news.yahoo.com/blogs/good-...151727016.html

    Wollie the cat is making headlines for a remarkable 6-mile journey home to his owner.
    "It's a miracle. I really believe that it's a miracle," his owner, Barbara Oliphant, said.
    Oliphant, 80, tearfully gave the cat to the Animal Rescue League in Bedform, New Hampshire, after her husband of 61 years, George, was hospitalized with a stroke. Oliphant was concerned that she could no longer give the cat, a stray they took into their home last summer, proper care and attention.
    When George's health started improving, the Oliphants' daughter secretly visited the shelter and adopted back the 3-year-old cat. Before she could reunite Wollie with his owners, Wollie escaped his zippered carrier in the shelter's parking lot.
    Three and a half days later, Oliphant spotted Wollie crossing a road near her home.
    "I said, 'That's Wollie.' I just knew it was him," she told WMUR. "He was so exhausted, so tired, so hungry."
    Back at home, Wollie ate three cans of cat food and slept for about 24 hours, the Associated Press reports.
    "Only he knows the story, where he went, what he was doing," said Laura Montenegro of the rescue league. "I just still can't get over it."

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."

    Cats have such a great sense of direction and we are glad that Wollie was able to find his way home, and did not suffer from his ill advised escape from his carrier!!!
