A Honiton family has been reunited with their cat after she went missing six months ago.
An adventurous moggy, who went missing six months ago, has been reunited with her family in Honiton.
The Logan family were over the moon to finally get their cat, Millie, back - after seeing a picture of her in the Midweek Herald.
The grey tabby, which has been with the family since she was eight weeks old, had gone missing twice before.
She went missing again last August and, despite searching for her, the family were unable to find her and feared the worst - until they read in this newspaper that she was in the care of Honiton Cats Protection.
“She kept going missing,” says mum Julie. “We really thought we had lost her and thought ‘That’s it, she’s gone’.
“It feels absolutely brilliant to have her back and we are over the moon,” she added.
Millie was really pleased to see her young owner Katy, aged eight, and her canine companion Ruby.
The family said they cannot thank Honiton Cats Protection enough for all their help and the great work they do. They also thanked those who may have helped feed Millie whilst she has been on her adventures and the man who found her.
The family won’t be letting Millie out of their sight for a while and she has now been microchipped.
Elizabeth Manley, on behalf of Honiton Cats Protection, emphasised the importance of having cats micro-chipped. She said: “A micro-chip is the very best gift you can give your cat. Millie was only in our car for 10 days, but she could have been reunited immediately with her family had she been micro-chipped.
“Every year we have dozens of cats reported as ‘strays’ and a quick trip to the vets and they are immediately reunited and back where they should be.”
Honiton Cats Protection will be running a free neutering campaign in April and May.
During the event cat owners will also be given the opportunity to have their pet microchipped, which costs £5.
