After a five-year disappearance, Scrub has been reunited with his family. The poor guy apparently got lost after Hurricane Katrina. With no electricity, extreme heat, and the environment changing, he must have lost his compass and wandered away from Biloxi, Mississippi.
|Scrub and his Human Brother|
His human mom got a phone call from the Humane Society of South Mississippi, informing her they had a cat whose microchip listed them as his owners. When she replied, “You have my cat! Oh, my gosh!That cat has been missing for five years!”, the employee of the shelter responded, “Oh, my gosh! Well, Merry Christmas!” For the last couple of months, a woman living about 15 miles away had been feeding Scrub, as a stray. She took him to the shelter when she began worrying about the cold weather coming on. And the rest is his-story!
Speaking of, he must have one heck of a story, roaming out in the world for 5 years. He made it through, though, with apparently only a couple of minor wounds from it. He’s now an older cat, no longer the two year old spunky boy he was when his family last saw him. But he’s back, sleeping under the covers with the human sons, and I”m sure very happy to be indoors at this time of year.
Gotta love a happy ending!
