Cat comes back home after walking 3000 km across the desert
Jessie, a missing cat finally reached its home in Australia after having walked over 3.000 km in one year across the Aussie desert.
Jessie disappeared from Berry Springs, Australia, shortly after her owners moved there in March 2010. The new home was exactly at the opposite end of Australia, separated by a north-south gap of nearly 3,100 km that runs straight through the nation's deadly desert heart. After few weeks the cat went missing and there were no news about it for over a year until it was found last week. Jessie's owners are convinced that the cat must have walked all the distance through the desert as it hates getting into cars.
