Melbourne, Sept 14 (ANI): Clyde, the cat, has miraculously survived a trek over 3800km in three years.
The cat was found in the Cloncurry Hospital, in outback Queensland, four months ago, where a nurse took him to local vet.
The vet scanned the animal for a microchip that led them all the way back to his owners in Tasmania.
Katrina Phillips told The Mercury she burst into tears after she came to know that Clyde was alive and well.
"We just can't believe he's alive, it's just unbelievable and it's so emotional," The Herald Sun quoted Phillips as saying.
"I bought him as a birthday present for my daughter Ashleigh and one day, about three years ago, he just disappeared.
"We did everything to try to find him. We door-knocked, did letterbox drops and advertised in the paper, but there was no trace of him," she added. (ANI)
