Lost West Palm kitty found safe 35 miles away

A cat that went missing in late April from a home in West Palm Beach has been found -- 35 miles away in Martin County!

The Martin County Sheriff's Office said employees at Patrick Exterminating on Clay Street in Stuart called animal services after they spotted a friendly, stray cat.

An officer responded and found the kitty had a microchip.

Once it was scanned, officials learned the cat, named Mason, was from the Briar Bay community in West Palm Beach and was missing since April 26.

The cat's owners had posted flyers and searched the area near his home for weeks.

Mason's owners were notified by the sheriff's office and reunited with his family.

It's unclear how the 9-year-old cat ended up so far away from home.
