Lost-Pet Reunions: Tommy slipped out the door

Tommy was gone for months.

Tommy slipped out — from Virginia in San Diego

Tommy slipped out unnoticed on March 21. We posted signs all over our neighborhood and at a couple of local vet hospitals and businesses. We checked the animal shelter a few times per week. But months passed and no sign of him.

We received a call from Tierrasanta Veterinary Hospital this afternoon, stating that Tommy had been brought in for treatment to a wound on his leg. The man who brought him in said he had found him about two months ago. Since Tommy was a found cat, the vet scanned him for a microchip and immediately called HomeAgain to get our contact information.

We are so happy to be reunited with Tommy!
