My kitty that escaped an was returned on her own will.

My baby kitty Onyx has had a very hard life so far. I came to meet her via a craigslist posting. Apparantley the previous owners moved out and left her in an empty box in the yard. What I failed to mention was that when they left her, it was winter in Illinois, hence it was on the average of 10 degrees. So I rescued her, she was very thin and feeble. More or less she was feral, it took a while for her to come around, but she did. She was a very loving cat, although she was a biter at times. Well to make a long story short, I was moving out of my parents house, and planning to take her with me, when something happened. Onyx had dissippeared. I moved to my place and just pictured the last time I had seen her on my bed before I left. I looked for her, but to no avail. I pretty much thought I would never see her again. About 3 weeks passed, and I got a call from my mom. Onyx had showed up on her front step! What a miracle! She was skin and bones and malnourished but she is here. I have no idea what she has been through, and it doesnt matter. All that matters is that she is here with me. Just goes to show you that cats are super intelligent, and can find there way home, no matter what.
