CEDAR CREEK, Texas (AP) The cat's back.
A Central Texas couple's pet named Sushi disappeared two years ago during wildfires but the feline recently returned.
The Austin American-Statesman reported Monday that Doug Maitland and Sharen Armstrong-Maitland of Cedar Creek were surprised when Sushi showed up. The couple evacuated during September 2011 wildfires and Sushi disappeared amid the commotion.
Maitland says he was on a ladder painting his house when he noticed a familiar skinny kitty in some weeds.
Sushi, who was spayed years ago, joined two orphaned cats adopted by the couple since the fires.
A black kitten turned up on the front porch a few days after Sushi returned. Armstrong-Maitland believes Sushi watched over the kitten in the wild and brought the little one along.
The couple named the kitten Ninja.
