Lost Cat Returns Home After Five Years

Reunited With Owner Thanks to a Pet Microchip

Five years after he wandered away from home in the confusion following Hurricane Katrina, Scrub the cat was reunited with his owner, Jennifer Noble of Mississippi, all thanks to a pet microchip

According to the Sun Herald, Scrub was brought to the Humane Society of South Mississippi by a woman who said she had been feeding him as a stray for a few months.  With cold weather moving in, the woman was afraid the cat would suffer if he had to be outside during the night.  Noble was contacted after the cat’s microchip was scanned and revealed Noble’s contact information. 

“This is the power of microchipping,” said Humane Society Director Tara High.  “There is no other way that cat would have found its family.”

According to High, the Humane Society has done more than 7,000 pet microchips and has seen its stray intake decrease over 34 percent.  “The animal control officers are scanning them before they even come in.”
