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.
