Cat is Found Years After Disappearing from Home

Animals are amazing creatures sometimes and can impress their owners with the simplest of acts. However it is common to think that their status as pets means that they are not equipped for the outdoors. Cats in particular have a way of surprising their owners quite often.

Anyone making the claim that a house pet could never survive the wilds might want to take that matter up with BooBoo the cat. When the brown tabby disappeared from her home in Watsonville in 2013, her family was understandably frantic to find her and no doubt heartbroken once they realized she was gone. One can only imagine their surprise then when BooBoo showed up nearly four years later roughly 3,000 miles away. Remarkably, the tabby had made it all the way to Ontario, Canada, where she was taken to the Guelph Human Society.

Ashley Aleman, BooBoo’s owner, relayed that she and her family had finally faced facts and given up on finding their feline companion. The news that she’d been found came as a welcome shock to them all. Booboo was found in good health, and was identified by the microchip that she’d been implanted with upon her inclusion into her family. This was the only reason why BooBoo was able to be reunited with her family.

In the not too distant past when a pet was lost they were simply lost and mourned for a time unless they came back. With the addition of the microchip however, a tiny device that can be placed just under the skin and is quite harmless, families need never worry about losing their furry companions again. How the tabby made her way into Canada without any mishap is a bit of a mystery, but the reasoning behind her disappearance has at least been guessed at by her owner. Aleman went on to admit that BooBoo has a habit of jumping in through the open windows of cars and likely just hitched a ride somewhere. From that point she could have ended up anywhere.

Booboo will be escorted by animal protection officers to be reunited with Aleman’s mother in Buffalo, NY, and then will be boarded on a cross country flight to California. Aleman and her family are quite excited to have their feline companion back.
