FORT PIERCE, Fla. - A Florida man has been reunited with a cat he lost 14 years ago.
Perry Martin, of Fort Pierce, said he had assumed his orange tabby named Thomas Jr., or "T2" for short, had died in traffic, Treasure Coast Newspapers reports.

Martin moved in with a friend after Hurricane Jeanne clobbered the state in 2004. Just a few days after settling in, T2 escaped the home and did not return.
Martin had T2 implanted with a microchip in 2002. He never heard any news about his missing pet until a Martin County Animal Services officer called him March 9 to tell him T2 was in a shelter in Palm City.
Martin said he initially thought the call was "too crazy to believe."
The pair reunited last week at the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast.
