An Indoor Cat Gets Out – from Jessica in Simsbury, CT
My indoor cat Mickey escaped from last September when a repair man came
to my house. After months of looking and putting up posters I finally
and sadly gave up.
Six months later, in March, I got a call from
a local veterinarian. Someone had found MIckey a few months earlier,
[and when they finally] brought him to the vet … the veterinarian scanned him. My name and
contact info came up and he was home a few hours later! I am so thrilled
to have my Mickey back again, and that even though he was indoors-only,
I had him chipped. I am also thankful that this hospital scanned him. I
feel so lucky this story has a happy ending!
