For over a year, George Lichte thought his beloved cat, Romeo, was dead. Romeo frequently wandered around town and even crashed weddings. Once Romeo showed up at the summer home of former President George H. W. Bush.

So when Romeo disappeared for a year, George thought he was gone for good. Then someone found a friendly stray cat and decided to adopt him. That’s when the vet discovered Romeo had a microchip, which allowed the vet to contact George and retrieve Romeo a year later.

How Romeo managed to survive on his own for a year and travel 120 miles is a mystery, but Romeo is back home for now, at least until he decides to wander off and disappear once more.
