When Clive the cat disappeared from his family’s home for more than a year, his human had no idea that he was hiding away in a place of his kitty cat dreams.

Clive, a Norwegian Forest cat, disappeared in 2014 and was gone for 14 whole months.

When he finally returned, his size had ballooned. That’s because he was living it up in a pet food factory where he was eating as much food his little cat heart desired.

And Clive would have stayed there if a factory employee didn’t catch on to his thievery.

When Tanya and Jonathan Irons noticed that Clive had gone missing they put up posters around their neighborhood to try and bring him home.

“He used to be very naughty and liked to go outside a lot. We thought somebody must have taken him in as he’s such a lovely cat,” Tanya said, according to Bored Panda.

Clive was living high on the hog when he started getting sloppy with his scheme.

“The warehouse operations director was getting alarm calls because there was something active in the warehouse at night – it was setting the alarms off. We eventually found it was a cat – we just couldn’t catch it,” said Colin Lewis, retail operations director of Kennelgate Pet Superstores, told BBC.

The factory’s staff set a trap to catch Clive and eventually did.

They found out that he had a chip and attempted to track down his family so they could return him.

“It’s a mystery as to where he has been over the past 14 months but we think he couldn’t of ended up in a better place what with all the free pet food he could dream of, not forgetting the odd warehouse mouse!” the pet food company said.
