If you thought finding a cat in a large house or neighborhood was tough, imagine trying to find a lost cat that’s been missing since 1986. That’s the fate of the Tasmanian Tiger that was last seen in Australia and hans’t been seen since.

If so, this would be an incredible discovery, almost as much as finding where your cat keeps storing your socks or underwear that it steels form your laundry basket.
