Those who have lost a pet know the sadness and anguish that it is to live without knowing if he is well, alive and in a safe place.
In the USA, Ronnie, a 5 year old boy came to tears when he found his cat, who disappeared a year and a half ago, in an animal shelter when he went there with his mother to choose a new feline friend. And the moment he found his cat Phoenix he started screaming with happiness.
Ronnie and Phoenix were always best friends, and when the cat disappeared, Ronnie and his brother were heartbroken. The family tried to find him for months on end, posting posters around the neighborhood, going door to door and even looking for shelters, but no sign of Phoenix.
Until finally the family decided to adopt another cat, since the children missed their friend very much.
“We went to the shelter to choose a new cat, and Ronnie saw Phoenix.” – says the boy’s mother. “It was Mildly Decent. Ronnie was very happy and screaming with joy, it was very exciting.
Phoenix ran into the boy’s arms and purred loudly with joy. “It was wonderful to be able to hug him again, he became an important part of our life.
The shelter said that someone took the cat to the shelter, having found it in the street lost, and although they searched for the microchip, the address was old and could not locate the family.
So here’s the tip for those who have a microchip in their pets: keep them up to date at all times! And for those who don’t have a microchip, the ideal thing is to use a nameplate with the contact phone on the animal’s collar.
