(Newser) – The cat came back—after seven years. The unexpected reunion took place in Iceland, when Birkir Fjalar Vioarsson got a call from a shelter informing him that his cat Orvar had shown up, reports the Reykjavik Grapevine. Orvar bolted in 2007, apparently displeased about the family's addition of a puppy, but all seems forgiven now, notes the Iceland Review. "I called him a little and he came running to me, climbed up on my shoulders and wrapped himself around me like we’d never been apart," says Vioarsson. Orvar, who had a microchip that helped the shelter find his owner, is in fine health for his 16 years. "I’m so happy to be able to take part in this final chapter of his life," says Vioarsson, who hopes to find and thank the person who cared for Orvar all these years. "We have been reunited and for that I’ll always be grateful.”

So that's how long it takes for a cat to stop being pissed-off at you.
