Missing Cat Reunited With Owners 13 Years Later | NBC 7 San Diego
There are two messages in the following article. The first important message is that micro-chipping your pet gives you a good chance at being reunited if your pet gets lost. The second is that TNR efforts also help reunite lost pets occasionally.
They both couldn’t believe the news.
“My husband answered; he was very shocked,” said Elizabeth.
“They called Tuesday night, I answered the phone. They said, ‘Hi, are you missing Bandit?’ [And I said] ‘Bandit? Who is this?’” added Dante.
Turns out, the veterinarian ran Bandit’s microchip after the cat was turned into the vet’s office by a man who traps feral cats [emphasis added].
Upon hearing the news of their long lost cat, the Corsos high-tailed it to Las Vegas, driving out first thing the following morning.
And the reunion with their furry friend did not disappoint.
The couple said Bandit looked just as they remembered him.
