You might as well call him Waylon the wonder cat because he managed to survive and remain healthy after disappearing from the Naples, Florida area and wound up near Denver, Colorado over a number of months. How can a cat get all the way from southwest Florida up in to the Rocky Mountains?
Waylon was found in Golden, and taken to an animal shelter where his microchip was read so his Florida owner could be contacted.Daniel Johns was very relieved to find out what had happened and was researching flights to send his cat back to Florida. A commenter on the Naples News story volunteered to bring Waylon back on a January 10th flight.
Mr. Johns said, “He’s really cool, sweet cat. He walks on a leash and knows his name.” (Source: Naples News)
Microchip implants are making these animal trackings possible, though some people object to them as unnatural. Regardless of one’s views on implanting technology in general, microchips have proven very effective in finding lost pets.
