Spartacus reportedly ran after being scared by the family dog. “The dog didn’t want to come in last night. So my wife opened the front door. The dog and the cat spooked each other and off he went. He’s gone,” one of the owners told AP News. The family spent most of the night looking for the cat in the woods near their home. Police were also informed about the missing cat.

The search was difficult because the officers had no idea what they were looking for

According to the Daily Mail, the police’ search was tricky because they didn’t know what to look for. “They had no idea; I had to show them a picture of what they normally look like. So, like I said, this was uncharted territory. It was out of the norm for most people here,” Merrimack’s animal control officer Haylie Gulino told the Daily Mail.

The cat was finally found near its house after three days

The cat was finally recovered safe and sound after three days in the New Hampshire wilderness. “The serval cat that was missing has been found. It was trapped near its home and is in good health. It’s been reunited with its owner. Thank you for all the interest and shares,” Merrimack Police Department announced the good news on Facebook.
