In 2008, Vicky Swainson adopted a cat and called it Gucci. In no time at all Ms Swainson and Gucci fell in love. Unfortunately, Gucci failed to return home one day.

Swainson spent years looking for Gucci but eventually adopted another cat. Twelve years later, Swainson was shocked when a vet picked up a stray cat, discovered its microchip, and contacted Swainson that it was Gucci.

Unfortunately, Swainson knew her other cat would not take kindly to a new cat coming into the house, so she had to ask the vet to find a new home for Gucci.
