Missing cat comes home after eight years
A cat that was missing for eight years has come home.
Owner Karen Raymond of Devon, south west England was shocked when she saw Scruffy - who had vanished in 2007 - waiting for her on the doorstep when she arrived home after a stint in hospital following knee surgery, the Daily Mirror newspaper reports.
She said: "I was really pleased to see him. I fell in love with him as soon as I saw him as a kitten and he has always been my favourite cat.
"He was such a friendly, loving cat and he's still got those characteristics now."
Since his return, Scruffy has been diagnosed with a mouth tumour and Karen believes he came back home to die.
