I couldn't believe it when I saw this: Calif. couple reunited with missing cat...13 years later . That's like 60-70 cat years... We do have the micro chips implanted in Olivia and Orsini. We got them cheap when Kelcie was living with us and studying to be a vet.
I have a feeling I would write them off as dead after a few weeks, maybe even a few days, if one our cats went missing. It must have been quite a surprise to have George return after 13 years. Maybe he is the visionary cat from Sandman, returning home to dream of a world of high cat-ladies and cat-lords.
