Abducted cat's trek from San Francisco to New York a mystery.
(08-10) 18:04 PDT San Francisco -- If Jack Daniels could talk, he could probably explain everything.

But alas, Jack can only meow. So it remains a mystery as to how the nearly blind black cat, abducted from the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals a year ago, ended up on the streets of Harlem last week.

Tuesday morning, Jack Daniels' journeys brought him back to San Francisco, courtesy of JetBlue and a cat-loving book designer from Brooklyn named LeeAnn Falciani.

"He's this superstar cat," said Falciani, who took a week off work to escort Jack Daniels from New York's animal shelter to San Francisco's SPCA. "He's wonderful. I'm actually kind of sad right now to say goodbye."

1. Wouldn't it be great if the people who adopted Jim Beam would adopt his bro?

2. Hmmm, maybe he rode the rails all the way.
He could have wandered onto a freight train.

4. Cats like to explore things like moving vans
and veggie trucks, although the refrigeration would have made for a very uncomfortable ride for the poor kitty. It's really easy to guess a lot of ways he could have made the trip. The real miracle here is that he survived on the mean streets of NYC for a year with such a physical handicap, although cats are perfectly capable of landing rodents solely on ear, nose and whisker power.

I think somebody will definitely take him in now. People like survivors even if they're not perfect.

5. A cat showed up in my yard one morning going in circles and
then crouching. I thought it might have rabies. Brought it to the local humane society and it turned out to be the cat of one of the volunteers there. She screamed when she saw her. Turned out that the cat was blind and missing for 3 days. She was 5 miles from home when I found her in my yard. Cats (dogs too) do strange and wonderful things!
