We’ve spoken on Pet Show and this blog many times about putting identification on pets and the possibility of microchipping them. A cat in England has returned home after nine years with the help of a microchip. The family says 15-year-old Dixie disappeared in 1999 and they thought she must have been killed. However, a concerned resident called animal control officials about a disheveled cat not long ago. After a quick check, a microchip revealed that she was Dixie and she was soon reunited with her family. They said she hasn’t stopped purring since she got home. Nine years is a long time. I bet she doesn’t stop purring for a while.
