On April 23, 2009, Eve McDonnell stopped to buy milk, not realizing her cat, Missy, had climbed into the car. When Eve stopped, Missy jumped out of the sunroof and was never seen again despite searching the area.

Amazingly, 11 years later, a cat rescue centre got in touch with Eve and told her that they had found Missy due to her microchip. Now Missy is back home where she belongs after living on the streets just eight miles from her home.

If you have a cat, get it microchipped. Hopefully your cat will never go missing but microchips can increase the chances that if it does go missing, you’ll be reunited with your cat one day.
