Sometimes animals go missing. They accidentally run away from home and get lost. But one shouldn't lose hope, because pets can return at any time!

Janet Adamowicz of Harrogate, UK, was shocked when she received a call from the local veterinary hospital that her cat had been found. Nothing seemingly strange about that, but Boo the cat had been missing for 13 years!

Boo went missing in 2005, when she was 4 years old. Of course, Janet didn't immediately believe it was her cat, but at the vet's office all doubts were cleared up.

Although the woman had already adopted two pets, cats Ollie (2008) and Tessie (2014), she never forgot about Boo.

Janet was heartbroken when Boo went missing. She put up notices around the neighborhood, constantly going out looking for her beloved pet. And 13 years later, the cat did come home. She was brought home by a woman from Pocklington, about 40 miles from the town where Boo used to live.

On arriving at the vet's, Janet actually saw Boo. It was her cat, only much older. Of course, for her age the kitty was in a perfect shape. No one knew where Boo had been, but the cat was definitely the one that had gone missing 13 years before, as identified by the chip.

Since then Boo hasn't left Janet's side even for a minute, always purring and rubbing against her owner.

Only thanks to the chip did a woman from another city find out where the cat lived. The chip contained the owner's phone number. That's why veterinarians advise to have all pets microchipped.
