For two months, a brave cat travels 40 miles to locate his missing family
The 9-year-old son of Halie Kutscher held onto an orange cat Beanie Baby for weeks in the hopes that his real cat, Oliver, would come home. The child had no idea that Oliver was walking nearly 40 kilometers to meet them again. The Kutscher family just discovered their cat had vanished as they were preparing to relocate from Bridgeport, West Virginia, to Morgantown.
They laboriously decided to depart without him after a thorough search, promising to go back to Bridgeport and seek for him.
We were still hopeful since we knew we had some time to keep returning to the old house to seek for him, Kutscher said. “We would return there on the weekends.” But Oliver was never there when the family came back. My son… would weep nonstop whenever we left without seeing him, Kutscher recalled.
“Watching it was heartbreaking.”
Kutscher remarked, “He was just staring up at us. As soon as we entered the building, I went to my knees and simply held him while he sobbed. “I grabbed him right up in my arms. The rest of the family and the animals gathered around him, but he remained right there with me.
Oliver had somehow found his way home, all by himself, as later confirmed by a microchip scan at the veterinarian.
Oliver was the same even after all he had been through.
Kutscher remarked, “He wasn’t terrified, hesitant, or anything.” He merely appeared exhausted and delighted to be home. Oliver can now unwind after such a long travel because he is safe in his new house.
His family may never learn how their intelligent cat discovered them, but they are incredibly grateful that he did.
