Missing Cat Reunited with Owners After Five Years

13 August 2014

UK - A cat which has been missing from its owners for more than five years has finally been reunited with her owners.

Sophie disappeared in 2009 in Morley, near Leeds, and was found in Beeston - more than three miles away, reports MRCVS.

Sheila Pickersgill from Cat Action Trust in Leeds said: "We got a call from a lady in the Beeston area of Leeds who said there was a very friendly cat in her garden and that she'd been there for two days. I got one of the volunteers to go and scan the cat and luckily she was microchipped.

"When we found the owner, it was found that Sophie went missing in June 2009 and had been gone for five years. She was 11 when she went missing and is now 16."

Sophie's owners have two other cats which were from a litter that Sophie had when she was younger. The Trust say that they are all now reunited and Sophie looks like she has never been away from home.

The Cat Action Trust is a small national chairty dedicated to the welfare of feral cats.

Sheila added: "We often pick up cats that are microchipped and can reunite them with their owners. However, sadly some of the cats we pick up are neutered but not microchipped and although they have obviously had a home at some time we very rarely find owners without them being chipped."

The Cat Action Trust 1977 Leeds are urgently in need of new foster carers for their many abandoned and stray animals, as they have no space left to take anything else in.
