Tiger, a five-year-old Bengal cat in the UK, was found this week after having been missing for almost two years. He was turned in to the Nantwich Veterinary Clinic where a routine microchip scan revealed that he was registered to an address 170 miles away.
Spokeswoman Samantha Tulett said: We have never come across anything like this before.
One cat went missing in Chester and was found in Church Lawton but never have we come across an animal which has travelled so far and been missing for so long.
We hear of cats being missing for over a year locally but not for that length of time.
The owners couldnt believe it when we called them to say he had been found.
Tigers owner Patricia Fletcher and her family traveled to Nantwich to be reunited with Tiger, who was found to be in good health.
They think Tiger may have been stolen. Bengal cats are often very expensive and a target for catnappers.
Tulett said: We advise everyone to get their pets microchipped. This case proves that it is worthwhile and does work.
