Cat makes 28-day journey to burned Black Forest home that once was home

Tom the Cat has been getting lots of love and attention from Lily Miller and the rest of the Miller family since they were reunited yesterday. The Millers' home burned to the ground in the Black Forest Fire, but Tom made it through. He was taken to a temporary place 4-5 miles from his home, but escaped on July 22 and has been missing since then. The Millers have been returning whenever possible to look for him and yesterday they found him back at where their home had burned. Tuesday, August 20, 2013. (The Gazette/Jerilee Bennett)
