This beautiful cat was found outside one of the rescue volunteer’s place of employment, where the people in charge didn’t want the cat hanging around.
Fortunately for this sweet kitty, one of the volunteers decided to take the cat home and begin a search for the owner. Kitty was a little beat up, but it was learned he was neutered and also had a microchip.
Unfortunately, the chip was unregistered, but luckily this rescue knew what to do. They found out it was a shelter that the chip was sold to, and contacted that shelter to look up the information.
There was a 50/50 chance this number would work, and it didn’t. But thanks to Google, Justin Bartlett Animal Rescue was able to track down the owners by their name. This family was so happy to hear from them, as their two cats have been missing for a year. The rescue has hope in returning the other cat to the owner, saying in a Facebook post
“We know exactly where their other cat is too, and we will be trapping her to reunite their last missing family member.”
Thank you, everyone, for keeping this sweet kitty out of the Palm Beach shelter. The moral of this story is to microchip your pets and be sure you keep the microchip information up to date.
