A cross-eyed cat in Scotland keeps having trouble finding his way home.

Ozzy, an 8-year-old cross-eyed male cat, is typically kept indoors due to his condition, but sometimes he gets out and has trouble finding his way back, itv News reports.

His owners, Ian and Evelyn McDougall, took him in after after Ozzy fell from a windowsill as a kitten, an accident that they believe left him cross-eyed. He was the runt of the litter, and the McDougalls were struck by black and white cat’s strong resemblance to Baghera from Disney’s “Jungle Book,” according to iTV News.

One of Ozzy’s recent journeys from home landed him in the care of the Scotland SPCA. Fortunately, Ozzy didn’t end up staying away from home very long. The SSPCA posted a picture of him on its Facebook page, and the McDougalls quickly recognized him as their boy Ozzy.
