This is George. More than 13 years after he went missing from his home in Santa Rosa, California, he’s back!
But this isn’t one of those stories where a cat hitches a ride on the underside of a car and makes it all the way across the country (and you’d be surprised how many of those there are). George was just three miles from the home of his owners, Frank Walberg and Melinda Merman, living in a trailer park.
