Missing Arizona cat turns up in Wisconsin

WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. — A tiny, grain-sized microchip has helped reunite
a cat found on the doorsteps of a central Wisconsin animal shelter with his
owner who lives nearly 1,800 miles away.

South Wood County Humane Society employees say they found the 10-year-old cat
on their doorstep Monday. There was no tag, no note, nothing to indicate the
owner of the Siamese cat. WSAW-TV reported workers scanned
the animal for a microchip and discovered it had been inserted by a clinic in
Tucson.

Employees contacted the owner and found she had all but given up hope of
finding Ace, who had disappeared 10 months ago. Shelter officials say they’re
puzzled as to how Ace made it from Arizona to Wisconsin. But, because of that
microchip, Ace will be flying home to be reunited with his owner.
