The Amazing Chinese Homing Cat

In an astonishing feat of endurance and survival, a cat from Beijing walked for 40 days covering over 100 kilometres to be reunited with his former owner, The Beijing Times reports.

The three year old cat was given to a close friend because his owner couldn't cope with his 'personal habits', but after seeing how determined he was to get back to her she has decided to accept that he's probably home to stay.

We can only imagine what this amazing feline endured during the mammoth journey from Changping district of China to the country's capital Beijing. The audacious kitty lost an amazing 2kg from his body weight, weighing just 500g when he arrived back home - maybe he survived by catching a homing pigeon?
