Thanks to microchip, cat found 80 miles away gets reunited with owner
Staff at the San Francisco SPCA were charmed by this very friendly cat that was trapped and brought into their clinic by one of their feral cat volunteers. This wasn’t the typical behavior of a feral, so when they did their routine checkup, they scanned the cat for a microchip and found out he was from Lathrop, which is 80 miles away!
Shelter staff contacted Squishy’s owner, Savannah, who immediately dropped everything to come and pick him up.
The two had a very happy reunion and Squishy is now back home where he belongs.
"We have no idea how Squishy got to San Francisco," Krista Maloney, SPCA Spokesperson, told SFGate.
Krista, along with the San Francisco SPCA, point to this as a huge reason to microchip your pets! Without a microchip, it wasn’t likely Squishy would have ever returned home.
So remember, MICROCHIP YOUR PETS!
