Ursula wound up at Chicago Animal Care and Control with a microchip registered to a disconnected phone number. It was sent to MicrochipHunters for help.
After many attempts, and a couple of days of trying numbers possibly connected to the owner, I was finally able to speak to the brother of the registered owner, Cynthia. He told me he would let Cynthia know about Ursula and have her call me.
We spoke two days later, and Cynthia told me she got the message and went to see Ursula right away. At one time, she was not able to keep her and had sold her to another family. She wanted to leave her at CACC for a few more days because she felt she had to do the right thing in case the person she was sold to came looking for her. Cynthia, however, told me if they didn't come, she was now able to keep her, and was very happy to. She loves Ursula.
Cynthia waited a few more days, then went to pick Ursula up. "She's doing great. She is awesome. She's getting comfortable to the new place." She also told me she will be sure to update the phone number on her microchip.
We don't know how Ursula wound up at CACC. We are happy that Cynthia is now able to have her back in her life, and that she didn't have to stay in the shelter any longer than her stray hold. She is loved.
Cynthia sent these pictures of her and Ursula, back together again!
