Karen Young from Collingwood was reunited with her male gray cat, Slate, thanks to a microchip. The two has been separated for approximately four and a half years after a friend took the cat out but the feline had other plans besides going back inside. What followed next was a six-month search with Karen’s husband, Richard, across town.
Last month, the family got a call from Bellbrae Animal Hospital saying that after scanning a cat’s microchip, Karen’s name popped up. The woman could not believe what was happening but was still grateful her cat will be returning home.
Microchipping pets is still one of the best ways to ensure pets can be identified and returned home to their owners safe and sound.
