Losing a cat can be heart breaking, especially when you fear you may never see your pet again. Back in 2012, the Daniels family from Bradninch, Devon lost their cherished pet. Then five years later, they got a call from an animal shelter saying their cat had been found.

Ringo the cat apparently wandered off and lived as a stray for five years. When reunited, Ringo seemed happy to see his old family again and the family was equally overjoyed to have their cat back once more.

So do what you can to keep your pet with you at all times, but remember. If your cat should ever go missing, there’s always a chance your cat could show up again one day.
