A cat which went missing 10 years ago has been found and is being reunited with its owner.
Peanut escaped a week after his owners moved to a new home in Watton, Norfolk, and despite being microchipped, the missing cat could not be found.
His owners moved to Cambridgeshire and had given up hope of being reunited but last week they were contacted by a charity in Norfolk to say Peanut had been brought in to them.
Owner Julie Terry plans to collect Peanut later this week.
The family owned Peanut since 2006 when he was a kitten.

Despite extensive searches the cat was nowhere to be found.
A year ago she and her daughter moved back to Cambridgeshire and out of the blue they got a phone call from Cats Protection in Dereham to say Peanut was found.
Peanut had been befriended by an elderly man who lived near the family’s Watton home but when he became too ill to look after him, his daughter took the cat to the charity.
