Runaway Cat Found 2,000 Miles Away

An orange striped tabby cat that ran away from its home in Florida has been found -- more than 2,000 miles away on a snowy street in Colorado.

Daniel Johns adopted the kitty in Florida in June and named him Waylon.
The feline escaped through a hole in a dryer vent and Johns thought he'd lost Waylon forever.

It's unclear how the cat made his way to Colorado. A good Samaritan found Waylon on a snowy street Wednesday and brought it to the Foothills Animal Shelter in Golden, Colo. Workers at the shelter discovered that Waylon had a microchip -- and that his registered owner was in Florida.

Johns says he's working to bring Waylon back to Florida.
