A cat named “Sebastian” went on an incredible journey after hitching a ride on a truck that was making a cross-country trip from Utah to Florida.

“Sebastian is a gorgeous boy who ended up a long way from home. It seems he hitched a ride on a Semi in Salt Lake City, Utah and ended up in Marianna. They took care of him for a short while but could not keep him. He is a very sweet, friendly guy! Wish there was a way to find his owners in Utah,” Partners For Pets, an animal rescue group in Marianna, Florida, said in a statement.

The shelter said that Sebastian is “not up for adoption.” Their goal is to find his actual owners, as difficult as that might be. Based on the responses the shelter has gotten, it looks like they’ll have help.

“My oldest lives in Salt Lake City. Just shared tagging him and all his friends. I would be willing to help in any way,” a person in Utah said. Several people tagged all of their Utah relatives in hopes that somebody recognizes Sebastian.

Unfortunately, several different people have also posted claiming that Sebastian is their cat. One poster claims that he’s her beloved pet who disappeared in 2018, while others are sharing photos of their missing cats. Hopefully, Sebastian ends up back in the right home.
