Goliath's owner saw the story on television that night and instantly recognized his cat. The very next day, he came into OHS with photographic evidence that the cat was indeed his.
"When the owner stepped forward, we found out his name was Hercules," said Baugnon. They also learned the story behind how Goliath, aka Hercules, had become separated from his home.
Six months prior, the cat's owner had traveled to Canada for a double-lung transplant. During that time, Hercules ran away from the pet sitter who was caring for him back at home.
"The only reason why he pulled through was because he loved his cat so much," Baugnon said of the owner.
