While no one is quite sure where T-Shirt was for the first seven years after he went missing, for the past four years he'd been living in the same neighborhood, being fed by everyone who lived there. It turns out that neighborhood was only a few blocks from where he originally went missing.
When T-Shirt was hit by a car, the person who'd been feeding and caring for him the most brought him to the vet to get him treated. The vet scanned T-Shirt for a microchip, and found out he belonged to Jones.
"The vet was amazed at how healthy he was for a street cat, so he was clearly getting a lot of meals from a lot of people," Jones said.
