ST. AUGUSTINE BEACH, Fla., Feb. 4 (UPI) -- A Florida couple said their 3-year-old cat is recovering after having apparently spent two months locked inside a neighbor's garage.

Jerry and Elizabeth Moore said their cat, Tommy, vanished Nov. 25 from their St. Augustine Beach home and he was discovered Jan. 20 hiding out a neighbor's garage, the St. Augustine Record reported Monday.

The couple said the cat had shrunk from 10.13 pounds to 4.5 pounds when he was found.

"He couldn't stand. He was completely out of it," Jerry Moore said.

The couple said Tommy was treated at an emergency veterinary clinic and the vets determined he was "seriously depressed."He later received a blood transfusion.

Dr. John Yselonia of Antigua Veterinary Practice said Tommy is now eating and gaining weight, which is a good sign.
