JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A cat returned to its Alaska home after going missing for nine months.
The Juneau Empire reports Percy Jackson Bleakley, a 3-year-old tabby cat, had never been away from home for more than three days until this March when it disappeared.
Owner Teresa Bleakley received a call last week from the Gastineau Humane Society. Percy had been found and returned.
Someone had come by the Gastineau Humane Society's 24-hour drop-off kennel sometime during the night last Saturday and brought in Percy.
Teresa, her husband, Keith, and their 16-year-old daughter, Reece, immediately went to pick up their cat.
The family marveled at how normal the cat seemed.
Reece says, "It's like he was never gone."
Animal Control Officer Andy Nelson says Percy was "fat and happy when found."
