Seven years ago, Benny the cat disappeared from the home of Nancy and Dave Bryant in Rochester, N.H. Benny went outside one day and never returned. Despite searching for Benn throughout the neighborhood, the couple never saw him again.

Then in December 2020, someone found a stray cat and brought it to an animal shelter where officials found a microchip that helped identify Benny and his owners. So seven years later, Benny finally found his way back home just in time for Christmas, which proves that the best presents can’t always be bought.
