Cat missing for 5 years reunited with owner



FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — A
cat that went missing five years ago has been reunited with its owner in
Indiana thanks to an implanted microchip.



WOWO-AM and WANE-TV report the 10-year-old cat named Charlie showed up at Fort
Wayne Animal Care and Control on Monday. Workers there scanned the cat and
discovered Charlie had a microchip that identified Virginia Fryback of Fort
Wayne as his owner.



Fryback says Charlie disappeared from her home five years ago and she thought
she'd never see him again. She thanks the veterinarian who convinced her to get
a microchip when Charlie was a kitten.



The microchip might have saved Charlie's life. Shelter spokeswoman Peggy Bender
says most people adopt much younger cats.



Microchips are about the size of a grain of rice and transmit information via
radio waves.

Hillary Clinton is on the campaign trail today. She’s in New Hampshire this afternoon.

She’s facing renewed questions today about the Clinton Foundation and about her emails while Secretary of State.

The Washington Post reporting the Clinton Foundation disclosed more than $26 million in previously undisclosed donations. Rosalind Helderman and Tom Hamburger writing, “The disclosure came as the foundation faced questions over whether it fully complied with a 2008 ethics agreement to reveal its donors and whether any of its funding sources present conflicts of interest for Hillary Rodham Clinton as she begins her presidential campaign.”

An early leak of some of Hillary Clinton’s emails while Secretary of State show concerns over the politics of the Benghazi terror attack and an outsized role played by Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal who blamed the terror attacks on an anti-Islam video. He later backed off that claim.  Fox News may get access to several hundred of those emails today. News as we get it.
