Before moving to a new home on a busy street, Jill Roberson made the difficult decision to find a better living situation for her pet, an outdoor cat named Mayhem. Jill found a couple on a farm six miles away who offered to adopt the cat, giving him plenty of room to safely roam without the dangers of traffic.
But Mayhem, on the other hand, apparently wasn't keen on parting ways.
About three weeks later, while sitting on the porch of her new house in Rutherfordton, North Carolina, Jill was surprised to hear a familiar meowing sound in the distance. And sure enough, it was the cat she had reluctantly given away.
"I walked over to the fence and called to him because I couldn't see anything, and he come bounding under the fence and I have been in shock ever since."
Amazingly, somehow Mayhem had found her, despite having never been to the home before.
"It is just a miracle to me," says Jill.
Jill then called the couple who had adopted Mayhem, only to discover that he hadn't been seen for a few days. The cat looked rather dirty and thin, suggesting that the six mile journey to reunite with his original owner was not an easy one -- but it was successful.
