Three years Missing!!

 Within a couple of weeks, 8 cats from our street area went missing. Our cat Socks was one of them. That was in 2012. Our other cat fretted badly for him as did our three young children. Socks was 5 years old at the time and certainly knew our area so it was out of character for him to suddenly disappear. He would even meet my husband at the bus stop each night and walk him home. But now there was no Socks waiting for him.
It is now 2015 and we have just moved 700kms away from where we lost Socks. Two weeks ago I received a phone call from our old vet. They are flabbergasted. A lady has been feeding a cat for the last two months and thought she would take him to the vet to see if he was microchipped. He was. It was our Socks…and the same vet surgery who microchipped him. No one could believe it. He was in good health although a few battle-scars and grey hairs with age.
No one knows where he has been all this time…if only he could talk. He is now back with us and remembered our other cat and dog. The children have grown a lot but he has settled in well and is very cuddly once again.
We are all still in shock…but so happy we had him microchipped. I never imagined that our Socks would reappear after 3 years….wow!!! His microchip details have now been updated!!!
I have attached a photo of Socks! He has a huge personality and certainly hasn’t lost that trait thankfully.
