Cat home after 7 weeks

CINCINNATI (AP) - December 18, 2008

That's Norma Meece's three-legged cat. The cat went missing nearly seven weeks ago in the Cincinnati area, prompting Meece to hire a pet detective and plaster her neighborhood with "missing" posters.

Meece says Hope turned up Sunday in a humane trap set near her home.

The cat is a former stray whose left front leg had been amputated. Meece says Hope appears happy to be home but looks a bit thin and has some scrapes on her nose.
