Daniel Johns finally came face-to-face with Waylon the tabby at an animal shelter in the state, six months after the feline first fled.
The formerly stray cat went missing from the city of Naples mere hours after being adopted by Johns.
Waylon was handed over to the animal centre after a woman in Denver noticed him wandering around her neighbourhood.
He was traced back to Johns via a microchip, according to The AP.
It is not yet known how the cat made it to Denver, though he is speculated to have hitched a lift back with Colorado residents vacationing in Florida over the summer.
