Noted Tks Barbcat..Lovely story....While on my holidays my parents had been feeding a stray, I was able to track her tattoo to a clinic, and I found a posting for her on'd been missing for two years... The owners were so happy to get her I can imagine the shock and the pleasure that this family has to be reunited with their kitty..Wow..

Saw this story last nite on ABC World News. Glad Willow will be reunited with her original care takers. Good thing she had one of those chips implanted in her. Thanks Barb.
