Cat Returns to Owner Who is Miles Away in New Home

By Amy Sinatra Ayres

When Jill Roberson was moving to a house on a busy street in North Carolina, she decided it would be best to give her 18-month-old cat to a couple living on a nearby farm. But the cat, Mayhem, had other plans.

After she'd been in the new house for about three weeks, Roberson was sitting on her front porch when she heard meowing. "I walked over to the fence and called to him because I couldn't see anything, and [Mayhem] come bounding under the fence and I have been in shock ever since," Roberson says.

The cat had somehow traveled six miles and found Roberson, even though she says he'd never even been to her new residence. "It just confirms that pets have feelings. We loved him, but we didn't realize he loved us that much, that he would track us down," she says. She said Mayhem now prefers to stay inside. - Watch it at South Carolina's WSPA
