Lost-Pet Reunions: An indoor cat jumps off a deck and disappears



Indoor cat Charlie took a leap of faith — right off a balcony.

Here’s another great found-pet reunion story from our partner, HomeAgain.

Charlie Jumped off the Deck – From Amy in El Cerrito, CA

Charlie is not the smartest cat I’ve met. He doesn’t really have any “classic” cat skills. For instance, he NEVER lands on his feet. He’s always been an indoor cat, so when he jumped off our deck we were worried. Very worried.

We remembered that he had been microchipped as a kitten, so I called our old vet and got his microchip number. I went to and registered online. Within a few hours, a notice of Charlie’s missing status was sent in an e-mail. The next day, we received a call from a nearby vet clinic saying they had Charlie.

Someone had called in saying they found a cat and the vet clinic had received the missing cat poster from HomeAgain via fax the day before. They had the person bring him in, scanned the microchip, got the match and called us right away. We were thrilled!

Charlie is now home safe and sound and we’ll be keeping him off the deck. Thank you HomeAgain!
