6 Unbelievable Stories of Pets Returning Home

5. Troubles Finds his Way Through Ten Miles of Jungle

Troubles, a scout dog, and his handler, William Richardson, were taken via helicopter deep into the war zone in South Vietnam in the late 1960s. When Richardso­n was wounded by enemy fire and taken to a hospital, Troubles was abandoned by the rest of the unit. Three weeks later, Troubles showed up at his home at the First Air Cavalry Division Headquarters in An Khe, South Vietnam. But he wouldn’t let anyone near him — he was on a mission! Troubles searched the tents and eventually curled up for a nap after he found a pile of Richardson’s clothes to use for a bed.

6. Misele the Farm Cat Goes to the Hospital

When 82-year-old Alfonse Mondry was taken to a hospital in France, his cat ­Misele missed him greatly. So she took off and walked across cattle fields, rock quarries, forests, and busy highways. She entered the hospital — where she had never been before — and found her owner’s room. The nurses called the doctor right away when they found Mondry resting comfortably with his cat purring on his­ lap.

These storeys just shows the power of love that an animal has with his/her human companion that is why I do not call an animal a pet but a companion sea monkeys an ant farms are pets not dogs or cats they are companions. =^..^=
