(WXYZ) — Welcome home to Daisy Duck the Michigan cat that went missing in October.

A Delta pilot made a round trip flight to Detroit Metro Airport Thursday to bring Daisy back home.

The Dearborn kitty somehow landed in Tampa, Florida after his owners declared him missing last year.

"We don’t know if he hitched a ride in a moving van or a snowbird took him down to Florida," the owner said on a GoFundMe page.

The cat apparently followed a woman home in Tampa. The woman brought the Daisy to a pet hospital and identified the cat thanks to his microchip. Then they called the owner.

Daisy Duck is now safe and sound.
