Missing cat from California found 4 years later in Canada — 3 Comments

  1. Yes, microchips are necessary and this is another great reunion story. However, chips don’t work if no one scans them. The family that took in Boo Boo should have taken her straight to the vet for a scan and checkup. I have been with my current vets for about 13 years, and though they knew and trusted me, they still insisted on scanning a cat that I brought it. What I mean is I didn’t have to ask them to, and if I had asked not to, they would have scanned anyway. I don’t know what the law is, but it’s just good sense. From what I was told, vets are only required by licensing rules to guard a client’s information. Each state has their own regulations regarding pet ownership, and animal control has a duty to scan lost animals, but for vets it’s more of an ethical thing.

    • I wonder whether BooBoo had a new home she’d been in awhile and her owner’s saw her “reunion” on the news and know they’ve lost their cat.
