Jess, 17, vanished from his family’s garden in 2007 and spent most of the following years living outdoors.
He took shelter on the grounds of the nearby housing community, where the residents made sure he was fed and cared for.
In his new neighborhood, Jess was known as Tibby.
Tibby started to show his age and they thought he should be brought to a place that could give him the care he needed.
He was subsequently scanned for a microchip and reunited with his former family 14 years after he went missing.
Neighbors were so sad to see him go but they are so glad that he’s been reunited with his original owners now.
His mom said: “I truly can’t believe he’s back with us after all these years.”
“We thought he was lost forever,” she added.
His mom said: “We were so surprised to get the call and we’re so pleased to have him home.
“I was quite amazed that Jess seems so happy after living outdoors all this time. I wish he’d been scanned for a chip sooner but thank goodness we’d kept his details up to date so we could be found.”
