Seth's back home thanks to microchip

TWO months is a long time for anything to be missing.

Especially when it's your pet.

Until yesterday, I hadn't seen my cat Seth since the middle of January. He went out one day as he normally does but never came back.

I put an ad in the Daily and the Maroochy Weekly, did a letterbox drop in my neighbourhood and spread the word online.

But nothing came of it. While I never admitted it, I thought he was dead. Until yesterday.

A random phone call yesterday morning changed all that.

"We've got your cat here."

He had been handed in to Palmwoods Veterinary Clinic after being found at a car dealership in Maroochydore. Staff checked the microchip and linked Seth to me.

Bringing him home was such a joy and telling all my friends and family he was alive and well was a feeling that can't be beat.

Palmwoods Veterinary Clinic's Dr Brett Stone said two months was a long time for a cat to be gone, but he's heard of longer.

"This just highlights the importance of microchipping," he said.

"Without a microchip it would be very unlikely you would have got your cat back."
