This is Dotger. My wife and I rescued him from a bridge in the Outer Banks in 2008. When we moved to Alamance County in 2014, I stupidly let him out of the house too early. He was not used to the area yet.
We did not see him for nearly two years. Around 20 months later, we noticed a neighbor had found a cat that looked remarkably like Dotger. He posted the find on our neighborhood Facebook page. Michele and I compared markings to older photographs we had of Dotger. We couldn’t believe it was him.
We are eternally grateful to our neighbors for finding our long, lost kitty.
Welcome home Dotger.
