We don’t know how many lives he used up, but a cat in Joplin has finally come home.

Five months after it disappeared in the tornado, Brandon Sanderson’s cat named “Seek” has finally come home. Sanderson says the cat just showed up on the doorstep, dehydrated but otherwise OK.

Sanderson says he’s ready to return the favor for the cat, which gave HIM lots of comfort during a battle with cancer a few years ago.
