A rescue cat went missing from her home from London 8 years ago. Now 8 and a half years later, the cat was found in Paris, 280 miles away from London.
Nobody know how the cat, named Moon Unit, got to France. She was found outside a train station.
The rescue place, L’Association d’Aide et de Defense des Animaux en Detresse, ADAD sent an email to Sean Purdy and Marna Gilligan, the owners of the cat informing them that they found their lost cat. They exchanged description, pictures and chip ID info and were shocked that they found their cat after such a long time.
“In the past few weeks, Moon Unit had been checked at the vet, and given rabies shots and worming tablets, and a Pet Passport organised for her. Two lovely ladies came over to our hotel with her on Saturday (we gave them some chocolates and flowers), and we took her to Calais by train (telling her story to the people around us), and our friends met us at the station and drove us onto the car ferry, and back to London. (There aren’t many foot passenger services that take pets).” Moon’s mom wrote.
“And the moral of the story — always get your pets microchipped and keep the contact details up to date, even if they are indoor pets.” she wrote.
