When your pet runs away, you can always hold out hope that he's alive . . . but the longer it goes, the less likely it is that you'll ever see him again. That being said . . . let this story help you eternally maintain blind faith.
Two years ago, a man named Cree Cantrell in Biloxi, Mississippi lost his cat, Jacque. Cree waited for the call that someone had found Jacque, but it never came.
Then, after TWO YEARS, he got a phone call that Jacque had turned up . . . in DENVER, COLORADO. Biloxi and Denver are about 1,300 miles apart. No one has ANY IDEA how Jacque made that trip.
But a vet in Colorado had Jacque, scanned the microchip Cree had implanted under his skin, and Cree's information came up. Now they've been reunited.
Cree says he'd never planned on getting Jacque microchipped, but when he took Jacque in to the Humane Society to get him neutered, they recommended it.
According to the Humane Society of South Mississippi, your chances of being reunited with a lost pet jump to over 50% if you have the pet microchipped. (ABC 13 - Biloxi)
