A cat named Charles is a long way from home. He turned up in Chicago after vanishing 8 months ago from Albuquerque, New Mexico.

His owner got a phone call from Chicago Animal Control saying the feline had been found in our city.

Charles has a microchip under his fur with all his owner's information. It's not known how the cat made the 1,300 mile journey.

His owner is feverishly working on a way to get him home because animal control says Charles will have to be euthanized if she can't pick him up within the next few days.

Charles' owner is asking anyone who might be will be traveling between Albuquerque and Chicago in the next few days and willing to give Charles a lift, to contact her. Robin Alex's email is ralex222@aol.com
