We’re delighted to hear that Wilbur the roaming cat was found – 25km from his home in Cambridge – after he showed up at Waikato Hospital in Hamilton. But it seems that Wilbur’s safe return to his owner, after 16 days away from home, owes an awful lot to good luck.
Ollie the cat was one of the lucky ones. He was found in Takapuna, Auckland after disappearing five months earlier from Botany. Somehow, this one-year-old cat had made it across the Waitemata Harbour, travelling about 30km from his home.
