Spartacus is a stunning African serval cat who lives with his adopted family in Merrimack, New Hampshire. Don't worry - the family has a permit and owns 40-pound Spartacus legally, after adopting him four years ago from a zoo.
Recently, Spartacus went missing when he ran away after being spooked by the family dog. It's okay, he is home safe now, but he came home with a pretty great story to tell!
"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 Spartacus' owners said.
The family went on to spend most of the night searching for the big cat in the woods. They also contacted the police to report their fur-baby missing.
“Dean and I want to thank everyone for your help and support. Spartacus is home safe and warm. I personally can’t express my gratitude enough! I have a bond with this cat and he is my person,” one of his owners commented.
