A couple in Michigan hadn't seen their cat since their home was destroyed in a fire back in March.

They thought it was dead, but they went to look at the damage last Sunday and their dog Chloe found it hiding under the floorboards. 

Owner Christine Marr says it's a miracle the cat lived two months without food or water.

"[The dog] was digging and scratching at the floor and sniffing found a hole in the floor within the wall," Ms Marr said on Facebook.

"Heard a cat meowing so we got food to coax it out. And out came Ringer, our cat, that we thought perished in the fire."

Firefighters searched the property after the blaze, without luck.

"We picked up furniture, looked around beds, looked in every nook and cranny for that cat," Chief Ronald Wise told WXMI-TV.

"To know that Chloe had found the cat, that's amazing. She's a true hero, she is. To get that cat, you wouldn't think the cat would live that much longer."

Ringer was skinny, but would recover, vets said.

"We're assuming he was eating bugs and spiders and stuff under there," said Ms Marr.
