Usov recounted the unbelievable call he received from the animal shelter a month ago.
"'We have this long-haired black cat. It's attached to your name on its microchip, is it yours?'" Usov recalled the shelter asking.When he heard the words "Santa Fe," Usov said he couldn't believe his ears.
"There's no way this is my cat please ... describe him to me," Usov said he replied.
Even though Sasha's fur was matted, life on the streets of Santa Fe apparently wasn't unbearable as the feline weighed in at a plump 19 pounds.
"He's not skinny, he's definitely been eating," shelter employee Murad Kirdar said. "He eats well."No one knows how Sasha traveled 1,300-plus miles from the Pacific Northwest to the Land of Enchantment.

"My goodness, I missed you," Usov said, cradling his long-lost cat.
