Naughty Lunar turns up 50km from home

Our naughty Bengal “Lunar” escaped from her enclosure on the evening of 13th April. She has never done this before. We didn’t discover she was missing until breakfast time the following morning. We live in an acreage estate backing onto a park. We spent several days searching the neighbourhood and the park. We did letterbox drops, listed her on the local lost pet page on Facebook, notified the local vets, the pound and the RSPCA. It seemed Lunar had vanished into thin air! A week went by and we were hopeful she would turn up on a neighbours yard. Then another week went by and we were worried that she could have come to some peril down in the park, as there are snakes and all sorts of wildlife amongst the bushland. Then another week passed and we had all but lost hope of getting our pretty girl back. Eventually, 24 days later, just as we were about to walk out the door to work, the phone rang. Lunar had been handed in to a vet over 50 km away! She had spent the night on the persons roof, before coming down the next morning. The people took her to the vet, who scanned her microchip & called us. Lunar was in perfect health, almost 1 kg lighter in weight after her big adventure. If only she could talk! Since coming home, Lunar has been happy to be a house cat and has eaten enough for 3 cats each day and appreciates cuddles more than ever!
