CRESTVIEW, Fla. (AP) — A New Jersey cat’s Florida adventure lasted 46 days.
Steve Kreuger and Ana Fontana stopped in a Crestview, Florida, restaurant on June 18 while driving from his house in Bullhead City, Arizona, to her Toms River, New Jersey, home. They left Trotsy in the car with the windows cracked several inches.
A thunderstorm spooked Trotsy, who bolted. Fontana tells the Northwest Florida Daily News they posted fliers and she never stopped hoping.
Last week, someone called local animal control about a stray calico cat. Kennel tech Tanja Keeler noticed the resemblance to the cat in the flyer, called the couple and they drove 1,200 miles for a reunion.
