Pet defines true meaning of cat walk

Posted: Sunday, February 10, 2002

HIBBING, Minn. (AP) -- An orange tabby cat managed to find his way back home, after a 350-mile journey across two states.

With raw paws and protruding ribs, Skittles showed up at Charmin Sampson's northern Minnesota home 140 days after her family last saw the 2-year-old feline in southern Wisconsin.

Sampson says her family saw Skittles last on Labor Day weekend when the Sampsons were packing up to return home to Hibbing.

More than three months later, Skittles showed up at the Sampson's front door.

''I knew it was Skittles,'' said Jason Sampson. ''The cat is orange, with white paws and he's got a look to him -- a unique look.''

Now, Skittles has settled into his old routine -- snoozing in the living room armchair.
