Anchorage, Alaska is a big place where anyone, including a cat, can wander and get lost. One day during a snowstorm, Ruger the cat went outside and never came back home. Ruger’s owners spent months searching for him to no avail.
Then four years later, someone dropped a cat off at a shelter and when the vet scanned it for a microchip, they found Ruger’s family again. Now Ruger is back home where he belongs although no one knows where he could have been for the last four years. As with anything involving a cat, that will likely remain a mystery forever.
