‘We cremated someone else’s cat’: They thought their cat was dead. Then, it came home.

A family received the shock of their lives when their cat, thought to be cremated, reappeared.

Frankie, a 16-year-old tabby, was missing from his home in Warrington, England for a few days when the owner Rachel Fitzsimons saw a similar cat dead on a motorway, BBC reported.

The Highways England staff gave it to the family to be cremated only to have the real Frankie come back later.

“It’s a miracle. We thought he had died,” Fitzsimons’ 7-year-old son Remy said when Frankie returned home, according to BBC.

Fitzsimons said the cat found dead on the motorway looked very similar to Frankie and Highway England workers even confirmed the markings.

The family had brought the ashes from the cremated cat home and Fitzsimons said, “so we cremated someone else’s cat.”

Through all the drama, Frankie was OK, but came back frail and hungry, Fitzsimons told BBC.
