Wildlife officials spent about two hours searching for the bobcat inside the high school.

But what they found was no bobcat. It was a regular house cat.

But the story doesn't end there.

The house cat, named Kakashi, had been missing for three months. Thanks to his microchip, he is now reunited with his family.
