Less than two weeks later, great news, Toby was adopted by a family who will give him his forever home.

But the homesick tabby made a 20km walk to be back with its old one.

- "Toby" the cat finally found a "furever" family after the ones he felt closest to brought him to a local animal shelter to be euthanized.

Toby is a 7-year-old medium hair orange and white Maine Coon cat, a breed known for long fur that sticks out of its ears and paws.

The SPCA said the initial owners still didn't want Toby, and actually took him to an animal shelter to be euthanized.

Gronk the human buys stake in Gronk the horse
In a video shared on YouTube Tuesday, fans got to see a behind-the-scenes glance at the horse named after the Patriots tight end. Gronkowski, the human, said he quickly became aware of his horse doppelganger and knew he had to add him to the "Gronk family".

Some people may find every single thing about this story hard to believe, and it's not difficult for everyone else to see the same. "Of course we said YES!" Toby the cat loved his family so much that walking 12 miles to reunite with them seemed like a simple and small task.

But upon completion of Toby's gruelling trek through Wake County, North Carolina, "he was met with heartbreak", according to an animal welfare group. He has two feline siblings and two human siblings, "and a cat-savvy mom to show him what a loving family is really like".

"My sister in New Hampshire saw it", said Michele Puckett of Raleigh.

"I am desperately searching for one of my fur babies who has gone missing, yet these people wanted this poor baby to be euthanised", another added. He would prefer to be the only cat in his home.
