Sacramento, CA – A California woman was stunned when she received a phone call from the Sacramento SPCA letting her know that her cat had been found. The call was particularly shocking because the now 13-year-old cat, Lily, had been missing for six years.
The cat was brought to the facility as a stray and when staff scanned her for a microchip, one was found. Fortunately, her owner, Jessica Kinsey, never lost hope of finding her pet and kept the contact information on the chip up-to-date, allowing for an unlikely reunion.
The shelter shared the heartwarming reunion story with Facebook followers, saying:
her mom said she has been keeping the chip information updated this whole time hoping she’d make her way home. Today, she did. ❤️
Lily’s story is an wonderful reminder of the importance of microchips, and keeping the contact information tied to the chip updated with current information. Welcome home Lily!
