A black cat that went missing six years ago has been reunited with his family just in time for Halloween.
Clyde escaped days after his owners moved to a new home, and disappeared.

But the micro-chipped cat was brought in to a vets in the town as a stray and identified as Clyde.
His owners who still lives locally, said: “we were just in total shock. But we’re very happy now we’ve got our black cat back on Halloween.”
The “shocked” cat parents said they got Clyde and his sister Bonnie from a rescue centre more than 15 years ago.
When Clyde went missing the couple scoured the streets searching for him.
“We searched everywhere. Put photos up and everything, and there was nothing until 24 hours ago when the vets phoned up to say they’d had a cat handed in,” Clyde’s mom said.

“I was just in total shock, I rushed to the vets and all the staff were laughing and saying: ‘You’re in shock’.”
The vet explained to us that the cat had been brought in to them as a stray after being spotted “hanging around an old people’s home”.
It is thought Clyde had been there for the last four years; he was fed by staff and known as George.
Big surprise for sister Bonnie! “Clyde and Bonnie haven’t met each other yet. Bonnie’s going to get a really big shock.” their mom said.
