Lost Cat Returned Two Years Later Via Facebook

Shane and Nicole Meide’s cat, Bob, ran away from their home two years ago. They had given up hope of ever seeing him again when they got a Facebook message saying, “We found your cat.”

Bob was brought to the local humane society in Minnesota two years after his disappearance and workers found a microchip embedded under his skin with the Meide’s contact information. When they moved they didn’t update their contact information. Workers could not find their new phone number, but eventually thought to search for their names on Facebook. “We love everything about his personality. We love the size, we love big, fat cats,” said Nicole Meide, who first got Bob with her husband after they returned from their honeymoon. She said Bob’s return “brought tears of joy.” [CBS News]
