Lost Cat Reunited With Family

The gray and white tabby was missing for a year and a half, but her microchip identification helped her return to her family.

Mena the cat wandered away from her home in Mounds View, Minn., nearly 18 months ago. Her family searched for her for six months, but gave up hope of finding her. “We started to worry and think that maybe something bad had happened to her,” Leah Killian-Smith told the CBS WCCO News.

Then, the family received a call from the Animal Humane Society. Mena had been turned in at one of the society’s shelters, and when staff scanned the cat for microchip identification, her family’s information showed up. Killian-Smith had adopted Mena from the Coon Rapids Humane Society, and the shelter placed the microchip on the cat’s neck before she went home.

Killian-Smith is grateful that the microchip helped reunite her with her cat. She plans to make sure Mena doesn’t wander off again. “She’ll only be inside with us,” Killian-Smith said. “We don’t want her lost again.”

That is such a sweet story. It is too bad that it took that long for them to find her, but at least they eventually did.

awww...that is so sweet. That cat is lucky to have found its owners even after a year and a half. Im just wondering where that cat was for all that time up to when it got to the shelter
