Reunited at last

Leicester Animal Aid delivered the best news possible to an owner whose cat, Dasher, had been missing for more than 12 months.

A stray tabby cat was brought in, he was very shy, frightened and quite jumpy. One of the first things we do is to check for a microchip, he had been chipped so we rang the number.  It turned out that he had 
been missing for a year and three weeks! As you can imagine his owner cried lots of happy tears as she had feared the worst after all this time.

A few hours later, and Dasher was back in the arms of his owner. He recognised her immediately and was soon settled in his carrier ready to go home. We couldn’t be happier for them all.

Dasher’s story highlights how important it is to have your cat microchipped, without it he may never have found his way home.
