RACINE, Wis. - A Racine family has been reunited with their gray tabby cat that ran off five years ago.
According to the Wisconsin Humane Society, a woman had seen the declawed cat hanging around her Racine home for the past several months and began to worry when the weather turned cold. So she brought the cat in and officials found he had a microchip registered to Lindsay O'Neill.
O'Neill says she was shocked when she found out and the two were reunited Tuesday.
She says she was at first concerned about his health, how his personality might have changed and how he might react to a new cat, dog and a third child.
But she says besides a skin infection and a healed mouth injury he is the same affectionate cat.
