Do cats always find their way back home?

Cats have amazing abilities that we still don't understand. One such ability is the way they can find their way home, no matter how far away they might be. Just how they do this is still a mystery. There is a feeling that cats can sense the earth's magnetic field and orient themselves to it. They also have a very strong homing instinct that can guide them home. There are many cases of cats travelling very long distances and reappearing home after a very long time.
