A couple of weeks ago, a driver noticed a cat in terrible shape on the side of the road. Without hesitation, he picked the cat up and brought her to a nearby shelter.

At the veterinary clinic, the Turkish Angora was closely examined. Vets were relieved when they noticed she was fitted with a microchip, and proceeded to read it in order to find out who she belonged to.

You're not from around here, are you?

And to their surprise, the cat's chip connected her to an address in Sarthe, France…800 km away! The cat, named Poupoune, had actually been missing from her home since 2014. Her human searched and searched but with no sign of her beloved cat, she had finally given up the search and never expected to see her again.

An emotional reunion

Needless to say it was a wonderful surprise for Poupoune's owner when she was told that her cat had been found safe and well. They have since been reunited and Poupoune's owner still can't believe her luck.

If it hadn't been for this pet's microchip, she never would've returned home to her owner…it just goes to show how important the simple procedure is!
