Did you hear about this miracle cat?
A calico cat named Willow, who disappeared from a home near the Rocky Mountains five years ago, was found Wednesday on a Manhattan street and will soon be returned to a family in which two of the three kids and one of the two dogs may remember her.
How she got to New York, more than 1,600 miles away, and the kind of life she lived in the city are mysteries. But thanks to a microchip implanted when she was a kitten, Willow will be reunited in Colorado with her owners, who had long ago given up hope.
I loved reading this story, in part because I am exhausted of hearing only depressing news stories, so this one was a breath of fresh air.
I think it is amazing that first the cat made the journey, somehow, from Colorado all the way to New York. And second that the family has moved in the last 5 years but kept the microchip address updated, even though they assumed the cat had been killed by coyotes! Now that's the power of positive thinking!
Now we gotta get Montee microchipped.
