Update on Lloyd, Hope’s most adventurous cat

The cat came back after five years living outside, and it looks like he’s home to stay

In June, the Hope Standard reported the story of a Hope-area cat who has lived an abnormally adventurous life.

Lloyd the cat’s human Terrie Fleet gave the Hope Standard an update about her adventurous, “social degenerate” feline who came home this summer after five years on the lam. “[He’s] doing great, and he hasn’t left home,” she said.

“The door is always open and he goes in and out, but he prefers to be in.”

Named after Lloyd of the Dumb and Dumber duo, who drive across the United States in their adventure, it is perhaps not surprising that the black and white male cat escaped not once but three times to a life outdoors. The third time he was away from home for five years, until a Facebook post by a fellow Hopeite got Fleet reunited with Lloyd again.

As a 10-year-old, Lloyd is quite a different cat who simply doesn’t want to leave home.

“And he’s gained [weight],” Fleet said. “He’s healthy and he feels good, and this is the first time in his whole entire life that I’ve actually seen him play” she added, and asks for pets.
