Gilly Delaney thought that her beloved cat was killed by a car nine years ago - so it was a pleasant surprise when one day, the cat turned up alive!
An overjoyed cat owner has been reunited with her missing moggy - nine years after she wandered off from her family home. Gilly Delaney was left distraught after hearing her beloved pet Dixie had been killed by a car in 1999.
So it came as a big surprise when RSPCA officers turned up on Mrs Delaney's doorstep - with her missing pet in tow. The officers, who scanned Dixie's microchip, returned her to her rightful owner after they found her wandering less than half a mile away from Mrs Delaney's home.
