Maggie Welz adopted a cat named Tiger. Unfortunately eleven years ago, Tiger disappeared when someone left a door open and Tiger strolled outside.

Then Carol O’Connell noticed a stray cat wandering around her home. As the cat’s health seem to deteriorate, Carol decided to make friends with the cat. That’s when she discovered that the stray cat had been microchipped so she got the contact information and got in touch with the cat’s owner right away.

Now eleven years later, Tiger is back home with Maggie Welz. That shows the importance of microchipping your pets because you never know when you might lose a pet so a microchip might be the only hope you have of finding it again.
