A cat that wandered off from her Colorado home five years ago has been found on a New York City street.

How Willow travelled more than 1,600 miles is a mystery, but thanks to a microchip implanted when she was a kitten, she will be reunited with her owners.

Willow was found on Wednesday by a man on a Manhattan street.

Animal Care & Control agency executive director Julie Bank said Willow is healthy and probably has not been living on the streets for very long. She said there was no clue over how the cat got to New York.

Owner Jamie Squires, of Boulder, Colorado, who said Willow escaped during a home renovation, said her children are looking forward to seeing their pet again.
