Missing Cat Spots Familiar Face After Six Years Apart

We all know that cats can be unpredictable creatures. Still, one man from Indiana was particularly puzzled when his newly adopted feline made a strange decision: she bolted out of the house and never looked back. At a loss, He had no clue what triggered his pet to flee, but only later did he learn that the apparent tragedy was actually the start of an incredible adventure.

Aspiring pet owner

Jon Gulla was craving both responsibility and love one day in 2012, so he followed in the footsteps of so many young adults before him and went searching for an animal companion. Of course, all these years later, Jon realized he had no idea what he was getting into.

Kitty companions

When he saw two cats — Julie and her brother, Jack — Jon knew he'd found the perfect pair. He brought the two home and let 'em run hog wild around his place. The kittens cuddled together. They played together. They were a delight.

Leaving for college

This made it particularly painful when, shortly after the adoption, Jon had to leave Julie and Jack with his mother. He was off to college and wasn't into the idea of hiding cats in his dorm room.

A second home

Jon's mother, Lorinda, welcomed the kittens into her abode because, c'mon, who wouldn't? Julie had a little white spot on her fur that made her just so darn cute. But her joy in living with the two kittens was unexpectedly cut short.
