Arrival Story:
On December 20 2006 Chance went missing. I had him out on the patio of my apartment around 9PM and some how forgot to bring him back in. I've had him for almost three years and in that time he has never been out over night. He often goes outside with me, but I've never allowed him to venture far from the apartment. Chance was reunited with his family Sunday Jan 14th. I found this website during my search for him and received so much help and encouragement from the members. Chance was given to me by a friend two and half years ago. She had obtained him from a man whose wife had died. The wife was the owner and the husband just couldn't handle him. It took Chance a few months to show his true personality in his new home. I also have a white domestic short hair female and she wasn't sure about him at first. For the last few years they had mostly just put up with each other. Then, recently they both started sharing me and laying on my lap together. This started just a couple of weeks before Chance disappeared.

After missing for 25 days, Chance is back home. Through a stroke of luck, he was found by one of the vet assistants from the vet clinic he goes to for treatment. We received the call from her at 12:20 pm, Sunday Jan 14th to come see if the cat she found was Chance. It really is a miracle! He is so happy to be home and resting, warm and dry on his mommy's lap. The miracle is that Chance was not microchipped when he went missing and yet some how he was found by someone from his vet clinic. The vet assistant was at her brother in law's house Saturday night babysitting. She went outside to walk the dog, looked around and saw a himalayan cat. Remembering the story of Chance missing from home she called out "Chance". He came running to her. She took him in, fed him, then called me when she got to the office Sunday morning to come see if the cat she found was Chance. I had to take a close look because he is so thin from his 25 day journey in the outdoors. But after looking deep into his eyes, there was no doubt it's him. We did not leave the vet office until there was a microchip in Chance. I want to encourage anyone who has not microchipped their pets, to do this. You can hope for a miracle or have a sure way of knowing your beloved pet will be returned to you if another human takes him in. I'm glad I got that miracle, but I now have peace of mind knowing that if it ever happens again the person who finds him will know where he belongs.
