18-year-old cat finds his way home years after Florida hurricane

FORT PIERCE, Fla. – A cat lost during Hurricane Jeanne in 2004 has made its way back to its owner in Florida.

Thomas Jr., also known as T2, showed up at the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast two weeks ago.

"He was just found on the street. He had fleas, he was skinny," said Sarah Fisher.

After checking his microchip, T2 was returned to his owner, Perry Martin.

The Humane Society says T2's journey shows the importance of microchipping and keeping it updated.
