After 7 Years, Cat Reunited With Family
NBC San Diego ^ | Monday, Dec 24, 2012 | Lauren Steussy

Posted on 12/25/2012 12:33:12 PM PST by nickcarraway

A cat named Sophia will be home for Christmas after being missing for seven years, the San Diego Humane Society announced Monday.

Sophia went missing from her family in Arizona and ended up in the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA over the weekend.

Luckily, a microchip was planted in Sophia and the humane society was able to contact her family.

Now a little older and lot wiser, Sophia will be flying back to Phoenix to be reunited with her family. The humane society and SPCA is making her return possible. “I was shocked to hear that she was ok after seven years!" said Sophia's owner Trish Oster. "I didn’t know how I was going to manage getting her from San Diego. It’s the best Christmas gift I could have asked for."

What’s that Chinese proverb?

You feed a dog for 7 days and he remembers you for 7 years.
You feed a cat for 7 years and he remembers you for 7 days....

Instead of a chip, which was useless for seven years, simply don’t let your cat wander outside. Keep him indoors. Period.

I learned it from the guy who taught me what little Mandarin I know.

Always good to learn from a native speaker, I got complements on my accent from numerous Chinese.

I wasn’t questioning you or your Chinese. It’s one of those idiotic statements that gets repeated constantly and it is just wrong with a capital R.

Merry Christmas to all the kittehs out there - especially the little meezers. Lilly - a product of siameserescue.org was waiting on Santa and her promised cheezburger. Siamese Rescue just recently placed their 20,000th adoption. Amazing work from some dedicated people.

Did you ever think when you eat Chinese, it’s not beef or chicken but a fat Siamese?

From my experience, the cat won’t acknowledge the fact it once lived with them......
