SACRAMENTO -- A West Sacramento woman got the surprise of a lifetime Saturday when she was reunited with her missing cat after nearly 6 years.
With a quick scan, it can pull up the name and contact information of the pet's owner, and it lasts a lifetime.
That small chip can keep hope alive in big ways for pet owners when an animal goes missing.
Looking at the 13-year-old cat, Lily, now, she purrs loudly and gladly accepts belly rubs and treats from her owner Jessica Kinsey of West Sacramento.
You'd have no idea she was missing from her family for nearly half her life.
The most important thing that Kinsey did was keep her contact information on Lily's microchip updated every time it changed.
Now, her days are spent as they should be -- with belly rubs, treats and cat trees; She's finally home just in time for Christmas. »
