As anyone who has ever had a cat knows, it doesn’t take long for them to become a part of the family. Some people even think of cats as a very furry kind of children!
And, as everyone knows, there are few things as bad a ℓσsιng a family member, even a cat. The most heartbreaking sign to see taped to a tree or electrical pole, is one for a mιssιng cat.
It is such a sad feeling imagining the stress and heartbreak that a family must be going through, and it’s easy for fellow cat lovers to empathize. This story starts with mιssιng cat signs and ends with human and cat being reunited a whole twelve years later!
Vicki Swainson, then 19, was left dεvαstαtεd after watching her beloved cat jump from a window while moving house and run off.
She spent all day searching near her home in West Yorkshire for her three-year-old back cat named Gucci, but couldn’t find him.
She had placed dozens of “mιssιng cat” posts and wandered around everywhere looking for him.
Then, one day last month, Vicky got a phone call from the vet.
Someone had been feeding Gucci for a few months as he roamed the streets. The cat lover had noticed he had lost some weight, so they took Gucci to the vet.
Which is when they found the microchip and called his owner–twelve years after he went mιssιng!
Now 31 years old, Vicky recalled the moment she was reunited with her adorable cat:
Unfortunately, Vicky’s current cat, Larry aged 7, wouldn’t get along with Gucci, so Gucci has moved in with her dad–and is very happy there.
This beautiful story just shows how important it is to get your cats mιcrσ-chιρρεd!
