A cat which had been missing for almost a year has been reunited with its owner thanks to a pet charity.

Claire Seymour, from Keswick, near Norwich, spent months searching to find her missing cat who had escaped through a window. Without any leads she began to think she would never find him.

Feline Care Cat Rescue received reports about a heavily pregnant female that had been a stray in Poringland for six weeks. When the team rushed to admit the supposed expectant mother they realised they were in fact dealing with a very overweight neutered male.

Molly Cutmore, from the charity, said: “We were really relieved to find that this gentle giant was microchipped so somewhere a loving home was missing him.”

By using the National Microchip Reunification Database, Junior, who had been missing for 11 months, was reunited with his stunned but ecstatic owner.

It remains a mystery how Junior managed to find his way six miles from Keswick to Poringland but without his microchip he would never have found his home again.

Miss Seymour had kept her chip up to date so even after almost a year she was still able to be reunited with her three-year-old cat Junior.
