An adventurous cat has captured the heart of a city after a woman woke to find it in her bed.
Jacey Jonnson, of Mill Lane in Canterbury , was shocked to find the black-and-white moggie had been lying beside her, watching her sleep yesterday morning.
Ms Jonnson, who works at Canterbury Christ Church University, said: "I rolled over at about 8.30am thinking alright, time to get up and see what the day brings.
"And he was just sitting there looking at me, with his head on the pillow. It was quite human.
"I've got one cat myself and I'm fostering another two. Two are black-and-white, so in a haze I thought he was one of them.
"But once I realised it wasn't one of mine it was a bit of a shock. I just thought what an earth are you doing here?"
She soon realised she had seen the cat - which she nicknamed Flearoy - around her apartment block before.
"He's been in to a couple of my next door neighbours' just to say hello," she said. "He sat on my neighbour's computer so he couldn't get any work done.
"He's very friendly. I think he possibly slept here all night. I got up and he just followed me around."
Despite putting the cat outside he repeatedly returned through a cat flap, so Ms Jonnson took to Facebook in a bid to track down his owner.
Her post soon received hundreds of likes and comments from animal lovers who were delighted by the amusing tale.
Thankfully owner Claire Tucker, who lives a couple of streets away, spotted the post and has now been reunited with the moggie - whose real name is Felix.
But not before he made himself at home and drank from Ms Jonnson's loo, while she regularly updated the hundreds following his escapades on social media.
Ms Jonnson said it is not the first time cats have wandered in through her catflap.
"At one time I think I had about five or six cats in at once," she said. "It happens especially when it's raining.
"I have no doubt Felix will be back. I think I'll have to upgrade my catflap to one that operates off my cats' microchips.
"His owner says he's a wanderer. He's got a brother and they like to wander around spreading the love."
Ms Tucker says she is very grateful to have her "cheeky boy" - who turns two on November 1 - back at his loving home.
She said: "He has been a rock for my autistic daughter, and gives her comfort when she having a meltdown. But it's [a struggle] trying to get him home, as he loves his adventures and sharing his love!"
Ms Tucker's daughter has now set up an Instagram page for Felix, so fans can keep up-to-date with his adventures.
