Saw this on asian news today thought it was quite interesting.

Quote:

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WPBF/CNN) -

A cat in Florida traveled nearly 200 miles in more than two months to reunite with her owners.

"That's quite a trip for a little gal that really wanted to come home," says owner Jacob Richter.

The last time Jacob and Bonnie Richter saw their 4-year-old cat Holly, she had bolted out of their motor home November 4th in the middle of the Daytona Speedway Park, apparently frightened by fireworks.

"Yeah, I think she just got so scared," says Bonnie.

For days, the distraught couple searched for Holly, putting up flyers and alerting rescue agencies, before despondently heading home to West Palm Beach.

There was a brief glimmer of hope when a rescue group spotted the distinctive cat outside of a Daytona Beach restaurant, which fed feral cats. But she disappeared again before the Richters could arrive there, until Saturday, when she showed up near collapse in Barb Mazzola's Palm Beach Garden yard.

"She was so skinny, so thin," Mazzola says, "all bones and weak and she could hardly walk, she was walking really slow, so weak she couldn't even get a 'meow' out.

Incredibly, Holly had walked from Daytona Beach all the way down Florida to within one mile of her home. In little more than two months, the little kitty walked 190 miles.

"Yeah, she had a journey, we'd love to know the story behind all her trip," says a relieved Jacob Richter.

Mazzola took Holly to a vet, who found her microchip, which showed she belonged to the Richters. Now, the little cat with the big will to come home is finally back with her family.

"We've got to fatten her up, spoil her again, yeah," Richter says.

This story serves as another reminder to pet owners: get your pet microchipped even if it doesn't not live outdoors.

It can prove helpful if your pet should ever get lost.

How does a cat lost 200 miles away still find its way home? Is there like a compass built into their brains telling them which way to go?

Seven of the dogs from Vick and friends dog fighting ring. Dogs can spend portions of their lives being tortured, neglected, and mistreated, and it seems like they are so quick to forgive and forget, and show so much love to the first person willing to return it.

During a California wildfire rescue workers ran out of crates to place rescued animals, forcing them to put a fawn and a bobcat kitten in an office together. When they got back they found that fawn and the bobcat cuddling and the pair became inseparable.
