A family from Glasgow are to be re-united with their cat after 5 years, he was found by staff at a vehicle recovery business in Aldershot. Pinks, 11 years old, had made the yard in Aldershot his new home, spending his days catching mice, the staff at the workshop had nicknamed the cat Betty and used to feed him on occasions at work.
When Pinks was first found as a stray, it was thought that he had travelled all the way from Scotland when the local Vet scanned his microchip! The family who used to live in Aldershot, moved to Glasgow two years after their family cat went missing, thinking they would never find him. When the owners received the call he said:
“I got a phone call from the vets saying we think we’ve got your cat. At first I thought ‘this is a joke’.”
His owners are now travelling to collect him and are very thankful the identichip located their new address, Pinks is currently in the vets waiting for his pickup & the 7 hour journey to his new home!
