Missing cat travels 190 miles back home
An emaciated Holly the cat was found just a mile from her home after two months' lost.
When they took their motor home on a road trip to Florida’s Daytona International Speedway in November, Jacob and Bonnie Richter brought their cat, Holly, with them. But while they were there, Holly got spooked by fireworks one night, and escaped.
The Richters searched for their pet for days but had no luck. Finally, they made the 190-mile drive south to their West Palm Beach home.
The indoor cat apparently spent the next two months walking home, and was recently found emaciated in a yard just a mile from her owners’ home.
The woman who found Holly took her to a veterinarian and discovered a microchip with her owners’ information, and helped Holly make the final leg of her trip home to the Richters.
“It was quite a journey for this little girl,” Jacob Richter told Florida’s WPBF-TV. “We just can’t believe she came home.”

We know which dog breeds (and mixes) are the most popular and even which ones are on the rise. But a variety of factors can contribute to a breed or mix's popularity, and just because a dog is hot, that doesn't necessarily mean it's a great choice for everyone. We went to the veterinary community to get their take on which dogs, both breeds and designer mixes, are the best choices for first-time dog owners. The following constitutes answers from 218 veterinary professionals who were given a list of the most popular dog breeds and mixes. The list was based on information from the American Kennel Club and on data gathered by Vetstreet.
