Lost Cat Returns home After 13 Years

Bryan Wood —  Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Paula Harper-Adams lost her cat Shelby 13 years ago. She had given up the cat as gone forever, but Shelby had apparently grown tired of wandering about the world and returned home last week.

When Shelby showed up on Harper-Adams’s doorstep earlier this month she was stunned. She didn’t recognize the cat at first because Shelby was in such a sorry state. But when Harper-Adams took Shelby to the vet, she realized the cat she thought was a stray was her own.

Harper-Adams dug up some photos of her missing feline friend and the vet confirmed that the cat in the pictures and the cat that had suddenly appeared at Harper-Adams’s home were one and the same, thanks to some distinct markings. Now, Shelby has returned to the fold and the entire family is happy to have her back. They just wish they’d known where she’s been all these years.
