Thanks for Donating Halo to Animal Shelters
Lost Cat Travels 200 Miles Home
By Caroline Golon
Holly, a four-year-old Tortie, was on vacation in Daytona Beach, Fla. with her family, Bonnie and Jacob Richter, when she slipped out the door of the Richters’ R.V.
The Richters were desperate. They searched the area for days, contacting local shelters, rescues and animal control, posting flyers and worried sick about their little cat. Finally, they had to return home to West Palm Beach, Fla. without her.
Nearly two months later, the Richters received the call they’d given up hoping would come. Holly had been found – and only a mile from their home in West Palm Beach, Fla.
How Holly traveled that far of a distance and knew what direction to take is a mystery. Scientists and behaviorists have theories but no one knows for sure. What is certain is that Holly just wanted to get home.
According to the New York Times, Barb Mazolla, the woman who found Holly, says she noticed a little cat “barely standing” in her backyard. Mazolla and her family fed the cat who, after six days, finally came inside. The family took her to their veterinarian who scanned her for a microchip. Fortunately, Holly’s information was up-to-date and Holly was happily reunited with the Richters.
“It was quite a journey for this little girl,” Jacob Richer told their local TV station, WPCF-TV. “We just can’t believe she came home.”
