WOODMERE - A cat missing for years has been reunited with his Woodmere owner after being found and rescued … by a zombie.
Disaster, a 5-year-old kitty, went missing two years ago. He was found 20 miles away in New York City by Jeremy Zelkowitz, who performs as a zombie for a year-round haunted house. Zelkowitz says Disaster was wandering the streets and disrupting traffic.
The zombie rescued the feline and handed him over to the authorities. Veterinarians were able to locate Disaster’s owner, Jimmy Helliesen, using a microchip implanted under the cat’s skin.
“He’s had quite the adventure I guess,” says Helliesen. “I wish he could talk. I’d like to hear the story … I’d bet it would be a good one.
