An adopted cat, who went missing 14 months back and was reunited with his family after he was spotted living in a nearby pet food factory. Meet Clive, a little rascal from Norwegian Forest, who disappeared from his home in December 2014 and left his owners Tanya and Jonathan clueless of its existence. Tanya later posted a picture of him on Facebook and appealed the netizens to help her find him. Tanya later said: “He used to be very naughty and liked to go outside a lot. We thought somebody must have taken him in as he’s such a lovely cat.”
But guess what, nobody took Clive in, instead he was having the best time of his life. A staff of one pet food factory noticed that the cat food had been going missing and decided to trap the housebreaker. They left a bait for the cat which lead to a basket suspended over a pressure pad.
One morning, after the staff came in, they saw that the trap worked. Workers took Clive to a vet who scanned his microchip, revealing that he was registered to the Irons family, who were living just two miles away from the pet food factory.
Finally, the family was reunited with Clive – only to realize that their beloved has gained extra kilos - almost twice his original size when he went missing. Tanya, Clive’s owner said: “Clive was nine months old when we lost him – and he was a lot smaller then. When we got him back we were shocked to see how big and fluffy he was. He’s obviously been living the life of Riley in that pet food factory. We heard Clive was a bit smelly when they caught him, but he seems fine now. He definitely recognizes us, he’s just fatter now.”
