Now this is an incredible story!
A 4-year old cat named Holly managed to walk nearly 190 miles over the course of two months to reach her home.
While her family was vacationing in Daytona Beach Florida, Holly became scared during a fireworks show and took off. Her parents desperately searched for sweet Holly, posting fliers everywhere but they couldn’t find her. Finally, they sadly decided it was time to head back home in West Palm Beach without their precious cat.

But the story doesn’t end there! A rescue group noticed Holly outside of a restaurant in Daytona Beach, but unfortunately she took off before her parents could get there. She remained missing for some time, until she showed up in the backyard of a house in Palm Beach Gardens… ONE MILE from her home!! Thanks to her microchip a vet was able to identify her and was soon reunited with her loving owners. Can you believe she managed to find her way home?! Amazing! Some cats are really determined!

I’m so blown away at this cat’s journey. It’s amazing she knew exactly where to walk to, especially considering it was so far! Way to go, Holly! I’m glad she’s safe at home with her family again.
