On February 12th, a young cat during his first snowy Canadian winter, wandered too far onto adjacent streets and got lost in the snowy landscape. He was found by a neighbor after 5 days, after my cat ran into her house when she left the screen door open. He was more hungry than scared after being outside in sub-zero weather for a week. They neighbor took him to a city animal shelter to have him scanned and get him back to us. Without the chip, the animal shelter would never have known that our cat was our and not a stray as he was not wearing his collar. Thank you so very much for your service as it has been the only way we managed to be reunited.
