Elderly Cat Returns Home After Being Lost For 13 Years.
Understandably, she thought someone must've made a mistake. It couldn't possibly be Boo after all these years, right?
She made her way to the Wicstun Vets in York, and against all odds, she quickly discovered that indeed, what the called said was true. Her beloved Boo somehow found its way home after all. "I thought it was weird, but I couldn’t believe it when I got to the vets and they had her there – and she still remembered me," she said.
She was overwhelmed and happy, but also worried about her poor elderly cat.
Boo looked a little disgruntled and beaten down, and it was obvious that it had been struggling and living on the streets. It was a bit dehydrated too, but the vets took wonderful care of the adventurous cat who somehow managed to get back to her arms. "I don’t know where she had been, I think possibly a stray but kept being fed by strangers – or catching her own food," Mrs Adamowicz said.
Thankfully, Boo was in good health, considering what it had been through.
The vets urge every pet owner to put a microchip on their cat, that way, you can easily find them should they get disoriented or lost. A spokesperson at Wicstun Vets in York talked about the many miles Boo had to walk to get back to its owner, ‘Somehow she has traveled over 40 miles from home – she might have done that last week or 13 years ago." They went on to explain how some cats manage to survive when they're lost, "It’s not uncommon for cats to nap in vans, sadly waking up to find themselves many miles away from where they should be."
Boo's human mom was afraid that Boo wouldn't recognize her, but that wasn't the case at all.
Not only did Boo recognize her immediately, but within a few moments, it was going crazy happy, meowing all over the place, rubbing against its human mom, enjoying face rubs and being the same loving cat it had always been. "Let us reassure you that there wasn’t a dry eye in the building," the rep went on to say.
