Meet Clive, a Norwegian Forest cat that disappeared from his home in December 2014 and left his owners Tanya and Jonathan Irons devastated.
The couple looked for his beloved pet around their neighborhood and asked for help on social media, but unfortunately, months passed and there weren’t signs of Clive.
They eventually thought that somebody took him since he was such a loving and beautiful kitty.
Turns out that nobody took Clive in, he was actually having the time of his life.
Clive was found 14 months later after the staff of one pet food factory noticed that the cat food had been going missing and decided to trap the burglar.
They left a trail of cat treats which lead to a basket suspended over a pressure pad, which would cause it to drop leaving the suspect inside.
One morning, after the staff came in, they saw that the trap worked. Workers took Clive to a vet who scanned his microchip, revealing that he was registered to the Irons family, who were living just two miles away from the pet food factory.
Finally, the family reunited with Clive, only to realize that their beloved cat ballooned to almost twice his original size.
Tanya later said that Clive was nine months old when he got lost and he was a lot smaller then.
When they got him back they were shocked to see how big and fluffy he was.
He was obviously living the life in that pet food factory.
He’s wasn’t a big eater before, but he always had to eat very quickly before his brothers stole it.
He was probably glad he didn’t have to compete with them to eat for once.
He has a huge appetite now though and we are sure that his hoomans are more than happy to give him plenty of food now that he is back home with the people that love him the most.
