Cat that pulled vanishing act will return to owners by jet

Posted: Updated:

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A cat named Hemi vanished without a trace in 2011 and reappeared mysteriously last week. Now he's going to fly halfway across the country to rejoin the family that never stopped missing him.
    
Hemi was a kitten when Robert and Jennifer Connell discovered him curled up on their engine block in 2009 at their home in Havelock, North Carolina.
    
When Robert Connell deployed with the Marines in 2011 and the family moved to base housing at Cherry Point Marine Corps Air Station, Hemi disappeared. The family moved to Bismarck, North Dakota, in 2013.
    
Last week, Hemi wound up at a North Carolina shelter, where the staff found his microchip and called Jennifer Connell.
    
Connell says a friend who works for an airline will fly with Hemi next week to Bismarck.
