    This photo provided by the Foothills Animal Shelter shows Daniel Johns from Naples, Fla., as he is reunited with his cat Waylon in Golden, Colo., on Wednesday, Jan. 4, 2012. Waylon, a orange-striped tabby cat, ran away from home in the Naples area this summer soon after being adopted by Daniel Johns. A good Samaritan found Waylon on a Colorado street on Dec. 21 and brought the cat to the Foothills Animal Shelter in Golden. A microchip linked him to Johns.

GOLDEN, Colo. >> A cat who wandered away from his new home in Florida has been reunited with his owner after being found nearly 2,000 miles away in Colorado.

 
Waylon, an orange-striped tabby cat, was reunited with Daniel Johns on Wednesday at the Foothills Animal Shelter in Golden.
 
The cat went missing from the Naples, Fla., area in June, disappearing within an hour after Johns adopted the stray. Waylon apparently fled through a hole in a dryer vent.
 
Last month, a woman in a Denver suburb noticed him hanging around as she walked her dog and brought him to the shelter. A microchip linked the cat to Johns.
 
It’s not known how the cat made its way to Colorado. One of the shelter’s theories is that snowbirds may have taken the cat home with them.
