The Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins has been reunited with his pet cat Cully, who went missing three years ago. The cat was found wandering the streets of Lowestoft, where Hawkins once lived, and was identified by her microchip implant.

“I always knew in my heart that she was still alive”, Hawkins told the BBC, like a modern day Erwin Schrödinger. “She’s always loved the great outdoors. I periodically checked in with the relevant databases and kept my details up to date because I knew this day would come”.

“When the owner’s details came up, I thought the name sounded familiar as my boyfriend is a fan”, added Delphine Wood of the local branch of Cats Protection. “I was just relieved there was a phone number and it was up to date. I contacted Justin and he was so thrilled to hear Cully was alive, fit and well. It was clear how much Cully meant to him”.

Hawkins has now whisked Cully off to Switzerland where he now lives, so that’s the last time that cat will ever pay any UK tax.
