Elizabeth Antev and the emotional reunion with her cat who disappeared 5 years ago thanks to a microchip

Elizabeth Antev is a woman who lives in Canada and one day he lost his cat named Kiki. This happened when she lived in her old house in the city of Edmonton, located in the province of Alberta. The cat ran away and left no trace. The woman, very affected by the disappearance of her pet, searched tirelessly for months handing out brochures.

“We put food and a trap for her, but we never caught anything, neither her nor anything”Elizabeth Antev told Global News. After the fruitless search, the woman and her family decided to move to Ontario one year after the loss of Kiki.

However, she still held out hope that her beloved cat would return, which is why she refused to change her phone number to a local area code in case the information on her cat’s microchip would be updated if it turned up.

And a miracle happened. Hana Kadria neighbor close to the neighborhood where she lived Elizabeth Antev, told him that lately a kitten had come to his backyard, so he started leaving food for it to feed it. She, along with another neighbor, managed to catch the feline and take it to the vet, where the scan of the microchip it carried identified it as Kiki.

“Five years later I got a call from the vet saying, ‘We have a Kiki‘. I started to cry. I was in shock”the woman narrated. A family friend picked up the now 13-year-old cat and took her to the Edmonton International Airport, where she took a flight to Ontario, the place of her new home.

“She doesn’t seem to be very interested in the door anymore, I don’t think she’s going anywhere”, tells Antev with Kiki in his arms. He added that the cat is adjusting well to her new home and that her days of wandering outdoors are behind her.

Cats can normally be self-sufficient for more than 48 hours, but it is inadvisable to leave them alone for longer. They may run out of food or water and their litter trays will become almost unusable, says the website blog.feliway.com.

Cats are very curious and they love to explore their surroundings, that’s why they run away from home, it’s something that is in their genetics, that’s why the website petys.com recommends that at home you adapt a space where your cat can play and entertain itself, and thus can stay distracted.
