Tabby comes home.
On a cross-country moving trip, Graham Skelly and his son Simon stopped at a Michigan rest stop on Aug. 21, where they thought they had lost their beloved family cat forever. The 14-year-old Tabby cat Milkie was leashed but scared by a dog and ran into the nearby woods, NBC Washington reports.
After a two-hour search, the father and son continued their journey to Arlington, Va., a journey that began in Seattle. After being on the lookout for some time, the employees at the New Buffalo rest stop safely trapped Milkie five days later. Skelly got the call Friday and drove 12 hours back to Michigan to pick up the beloved pet.
