When Geoff Earnest says both he and his cat came back from the dead, the large brown tabby stares and blinks. But when the now-famous stray and the transplant survivor found each other in January 2007, news agencies around the world agreed.

Their story began when Jadwiga Drozdek of Portland, Ore., noticed cat food quickly disappearing from the dish in her garage. Then, one day, she found a huge cat running toward the garage door.
