Cat missing three days returns home for Christmas

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia, Dec. 27 (UPI) -- The return on Christmas Day of a Canadian woman's cat that had been missing for three days made the day even more special, the woman says.

The 7-month-old black cat, Meow-Meow, went missing Sunday from his Halifax home while wearing a red sweater, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Thursday.

Hoping to lure the sweater-wearing cat back home, owner Chantelle Rideout said she put the cat's toys, litter box and some clothing in the yard. Her family decided to delay opening presents until Meow-Meow came home.

Santa must have found him, because at 3 a.m. Christmas morning, Rideout heard the cat meowing on the front porch.

"It was so great having Christmas with him back," Rideout said. "It wouldn't have been the same without him."

Meow-Meow was hungry and thirsty, she said, but otherwise unharmed. Mysteriously, he was no longer wearing the red sweater.
