Cat reunited with owner after 3 years
Missing McGee back at home.
When her fluffy, gray 2-year-old cat disappeared from her Long Island, N.Y., home three years ago, Charlene Lanigan searched everywhere for him, posting signs and wandering nearby streets shaking a container of food. But she wasn’t prepared to get a phone call from the East Islip animal shelter recently saying that the cat had been found.
A local resident had seen McGee hanging around his yard for the last month, and when the weather started getting colder, he brought him to the shelter to have him checked for a microchip. Now, he’s back home with Lanigan.
“I just said to him this morning, ‘why can’t you tell me where you were?’ I just missed him so much,” said Lanigan.
McGee’s vet believes he must have been taken in by someone else because he’s in perfect health.
