After almost three weeks of being missing, 18-month-old Horace the orange tabby cat managed to find his way back home again with two broken legs, the East Anglian Daily Times reports.
Thirty-eight-year-old owner and mother-of-three Kara Hayward told the paper she had almost given up hope of ever seeing their pet again.
“I began to put posters up … I had a few phone calls but they turned out to be somebody else’s cats,” Hayward told the East Anglian Daily Times. “I was watching a clip of Horace on my phone and it wasn’t doing my health any good, I was worrying about him.”
Eighteen days after he had gone missing, however, Horace came hobbling through the family’s door. Hayward told the paper they immediately took him to the animal hospital, where doctors were shocked at how long the cat had survived on his own in that condition. Eight more lives to go!
