Cats are very independent creatures and it's very easy to lose your beloved pet if you're not careful. It's recommended to put a unique collar on your cat so you can spot it and, even more effective, use a microchip, which will simplify the identification of your feline friend.

Lost cat "terrorizes" a family

Erin Breean of Austin, Texas, posted in a local lost pets Facebook group pleading with someone to get the cat that she found. Erin wrote that the lost cat followed her and her dog home and kept staring at their window throughout the night:

Its been over 4 hours now, he’s just staring at us through the window howling at the top of his lungs.

Breean knew the cat belonged to someone as it was pretty well fed. Nevertheless, she took care of their new family friend, but never lost hope that someone would show up to get him.

Finally, four days of staring into Erin's window, the cat was reclaimed by its owner. Turned out, his name was Kylo and he was very happy to be reunited with his owner.
