Poldi's family desperately tried to find the missing cat but to no avail and after months of looking they believed they would never see him again.

But an incredible 16 years later Poldi was found 20 miles away living in a forest.

The hikers who discovered the poorly puss took him to a local animal welfare centre where he and and his owner were identified by a tattoo on his ear.

The Munich Tierschutzverein Animal Rescue Centre spokesman Eveline Kosenbach said Poldi is now back with his relieved owner Monika Moser.

Geez. 16 years out in the forest and still survived and looks good. Those Germans really know how to build a cat.

Never expect gratitude from a Cat.

You should see the tattoo a crackpot vet put one of my Ibizans while she was being spayed.

I expected the usual, small discrete AKC ID number and she came out with what looked like the preamble to the Constitution on her inner thigh.

I almost hit the floor.

He said he wanted to make it visible.

Well, it is...from the *moon*.

Wow, he looks so much like one of my babies, except that my girl is several years younger.

It’s lucky he was found, but sad that it took 16 years. He probably won’t be around much longer. The oldest cat I had lived to 19.

But at least he is home and can spend what time he has left in the loving embrace of the people that had him in the begining. :)=^..^=

Good thing he gets to spend his last days in comfort with those who love him. Here’s hoping he lives in good health to be 27.
