A cat that went missing 13 years ago has been found and reunited with her owner.

Gemma Barbieri from Thetford, Norfolk, said she was "stunned" when she received a call saying 14-year-old Rose had been found.

Mr Barbieri said she "couldn't believe it" when Cats Protection's Downham Market Adoption Centre rang.

"I just blurted out 'have you found Rose?'," she said. "It was Rose. I was shaking."

Ms Barbieri said the family, who used to live in King's Lynn, had put up posters and knocked on doors when Rose went missing, and registered her on the microchip database in the hope she would be found eventually.

Rose was taken in by Cats Protection this year but her whereabouts for the last 13 years is not known.

Ms Barbieri said the cat was a healthy weight and in good condition, and settled "almost immediately" when she brought her home.

Sounds like someone found her, continued to raise her as their own for 13 years thinking she was a stray cat.

And now she ran away from them :deadbanana:

Omg that's crazy. Can't imagine having the cat for one year then he goes missing for 13 years and comes back to die of old age in a couple of years. I mean it's a way to close the circle but what about the rest of his life. :(
