Missing For More Than 7 Years!!


My beautiful Maine Coon 4 year old cat went missing in March 2011 - he was an indoor cat that had escaped outside. We combed the streets, put up posters, checked local vets, the council, and animal rescue centres for months and months but no sign. As we lived very close to a bushland reserve, I was convinced he had been taken by a fox or met some other horrible fate.

On Wednesday this week I received a call from a vet clinic 40km away, telling me that someone had brought in a stray and the microchip revealed it was my long lost cat! 7.5 years since he went missing. He is now back home and it will be a little while before he is back to full health, but I am so grateful that he was microchipped and able to return home.
