Yesterday, the BBC reported this heart warming story about a Shorthaired tabby called Tina.
Tina was found in a garage in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, but her microchip was registered in Las Palmas on the Spanish island of Fuerteventura. The phone number recorded on the chip was disconnected and it was feared that the owner may have emigrated to the UK and not updated the address details.
Cats Protection were quick to ring round a number of vets and she was soon reunited with her owner Fiona Prati, who used to live in Fuerteventura and is now residing in Bridge of Don, 30 miles from where she was found.
Zahir White, from Cats Protection, said: “It is great news that Tina’s owner has been found and we’re happy we were able to play a part in reuniting them. Every week we help to reunite 50 lost cats with their owners across the UK and this is one of the most unusual cases we have come across.”
I do love a happy ending and it shows how worthwhile it is to get your pets chipped.
