A one-eyed cat who went missing from its family home was found less than a mile away from where she disappeared - after 11 YEARS.  See ROSS PARRY story RPYCAT.  Emotional Terrie Mitchell was reunited with her long-lost cat, Chloe after she was discovered living in an overturned wheelie bin by a postwoman just a couple of streets away from where she went missing.  Terrie believed she would never see her pretty puss again until she spotted the long-haired moggie on Facebook.  The 34-year-old was just 21 when she got Chloe as a kitten and was still living at home with her mum Jean.  When she moved out with her partner, Terrie let the black, long-haired cat stay in the house she was used to.  But when Terrie's mum died unexpectedly at the age of 60, Chloe disappeared and couldn't be found anywhere.  Terrie believed she would never see her pet again until a postwoman who had found the cat living in an overturned wheelie bin posted a picture on Facebook.  The pair were reunited on November 5 this year - exactly two weeks before the anniversary of the death of Terrie's mum.
