Luna is home after 9 days!!!
Jack, a good samaritan from Florida, took in a beautiful lost cat , and had her scanned for a microchip. He decided to send it to us at#MicrochipHunters after registering the cat onhelpinglostpets.com, and trying to find her owner for several days. Her name is Luna.
I emailed Jack after receiving the case to confirm he was still holding on to Luna, and to let him know I would be trying to find her family. His message back to me was that he contacted the number associated with her microchip, and got a call back from someone saying he was bothering his son, and that they didn’t know anything about a cat. He wanted to let me know not to call that number.
I did my usual searches, and began calling and texting anyone related to the registered owner, and finally, the father of the owner answered the phone. He told me he would let his son know to call me, but that he didn't know of his son having a cat. I wasn't hopeful that I would hear back from anyone.
Late evening, I received a call. It was from a friend of the current owner. She explained that the father did connect with his son, and that the cat was actually the son's cat, together with his girlfriend. They broke up, and agreed the girlfriend would keep the cat. She told me they were looking for her and asked about picking her up. I emailed the finder to call me to relay the information to him and give him the phone number to make arrangements to get Luna home. He was very happy to hear this good news, and I could tell very relieved.
I received a text from Jack shortly after, saying Luna is on her way home. He made someone very happy.
Thank you Jack for taking such good care of Luna, getting her scanned, posting on helpinglostpets, and sending this case to microchiphelp.com. You are wonderful!
***Here is what Jack had to say when updating Luna to "Back Home" on helpinglostpets***
"The cat was lost just before the owner moved, and the phone number listed for the microchip was to an old home.
Lost and Found Pets of Tallahassee (through Microchip Hunters) was able to drill down and find an owner with out of date contact information within a day of posting there. I wish I had gone to them first, they did what Nextdoor, the City's Animal Services, and the Humane Society were not able to."
