Next time you're lost, you might consider asking a feline friend for directions. According to Jacob and Bonnie Richter, their four-year-old cat, Holly, traveled 200 miles home to Palm Beach, Florida, after being separated from the family in Daytona Beach, Florida.
The Richters were camping when Holly escaped through the open door of the family's motor home. After alerting authorities and searching for days, the Richters did not expect to see Holly again. Two months later, the cat showed up a mile from the Richters' home. She was fine, though a bit thinner and suffering from sore paws.
According to the New York Times, scientists are baffled by the cat's ability to use her senses of smell and sight to return to her owners. "I really believe these stories, but they are just hard to explain," Marc Bekoff, a scientist at the University of Colorado, told the Times.
