    Default Missing cat back in California home after 13 years



    A California couple recently had an unexpected reunion with an old housemate: their pet cat who went missing more than 13 years ago.
    The cat, named George, was last seen by Melinda Merman and Frank Walburg in 1995. He recently resurfaced when the manager of a mobile home park trapped the sickly feline and gave him to an animal hospital.
    A microchip implanted in George allowed him to be traced back to his owners.
    Merman says after George went missing she visited animal shelters and wrote to veterinarians in search of the gray, yellow-eyed cat, who now weighs less than half his original 14-pounds.
    But Merman and Walburg say George is eating well and displaying some of his old behavior, like jumping at flickering light on the wall.

    That is so awesome! I had a microchip implanted in my cat when I left the USA, and when she was missing in Italy, it didn't do me any good to help locate her. But nice to know it is beneficial....
