NAPLES, Fla.: It takes about 22 hours to reach Florida by car for a person traveling from Wisconsin.

But if youíre a cat, the 1,484-mile journey likely takes closer to two months. At least thatís how long it took Nadia, the Russian blue, to trek from her home on a snowy December day to sunny Naples this week where animal officials helped find her owners.

The Naples Daily News reports Cheri Stocker adopted the cat nine months ago in Wisconsin. On Christmas Eve, the cat escaped.

A Naples woman found the kitty in North Naples.

Workers at an animal shelter found the catís microchip and, through a pet relocation service, got hold of Stockerís sister, who had been listed as an emergency contact.
