Cat Vanishes from Colorado, Appears Five Years Later in New York City

Willow, a calico cat belonging to the Squires family of Boulder, Colorado, disappeared five years ago. Because she was microchipped, animal control authorities were able to identify her when she was found on a street in Manhattan:

How she got to New York, nearly 1,800 miles away, and the kind of life she lived in the city are mysteries.

But thanks to a microchip implanted when she was a kitten, Willow will be reunited in Colorado with her owners, who had long ago given up hope.[...]

Squires and her husband, Chris, were “shocked and astounded” when they got a call Wednesday from Animal Care & Control, which runs New York City’s animal rescue and shelter system.

Willow had been found on East 20th Street by a man who took her to a shelter.
