Jan. 24, 2011 - PRLog -- A lady from the Isle of Wight was feeling just purr-fect after she was reunited with her cat that had been missing for well over a year. Harriet Parkinsons cat, Star was located almost three hundred miles from home. The cat and her owner were re-united after Star was handed in at a rescue centre in York; she had disappeared in October 2009 and despite a leaflet and poster campaign as well as a frantic search Harriet and family of three children had given up hope of ever seeing their treasured pet again. It really is quite a remarkable story as Stars journey would have take it across land and see.
Star had been at the Parkinsons family home ever since he was a kitten and disappeared when he was only 9 months old. Star was handed in to York Cats protection centre where staff scanned a microchip in Star only to reveal she had come originally from the Isle of Wight. The exact details of how Star ended up in York are unclear however it has been speculated that she may have been taken in by someone who then moved to York.

The story just goes to highlight the important of micro-chipping in pets. A microchip implant is placed under the skin of a dog, cat, horse (as well as other animals) and are only about the size of a large grain of rice. Dogs and cats usually have the chip inserted at the back of the neck, just below the skin where as horses are usually chipped at the left side of the neck. As well as being useful in the return of lost pets they can also assist where ownership of an animal is in dispute. When a shelter can quickly match a pet to it’s owner it saves the expense of housing, feeding and any medical care. Micro chips are not in universal use although they are highly recommended.
