Karen Jones, a 48-year-old woman from the UK, was left in tears after her missing cat turned up dead on the side of the road.
Or at least she thought he did.
Turns out it was all just a case of mistaken identity!
Karen was looking for her missing cat Norman and when a passer-by told her family that there was a cat matching his description that had been hit by a car, she went to investigate.
When she got there, she knew it was Norman. Same size, same fur and same eye color.
So her 22-year-old son Harry dug a grave in their backyard and they buried Norman, spending the day grieving.
Then the next day… Norman walked back into their kitchen and ate his breakfast that was still sitting out!!
"I hadn’t seen Norman all morning because he often goes roaming around. So I had a feeling it was him when I saw the cat by the side of the road. It was exactly the same size, same color and had the same face. We were in tears all day. We brought it back and buried him in bags in the bottom of our garden. But then the next day Norman came wandering in. We couldn’t believe it. We just picked him up and started cuddling him. At first I thought he had been resurrected from the dead. Then I realized we must have had the wrong cat."
They thought he was dead so it's literally like a second chance with Norman!
