ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — Talk about a Christmas miracle! A cat, who was lost by her family in South Carolina two years ago, was found in Rockford – and is on her way to being reunited with her owners!
The 3-year-old black cat, named Halloween, was found on West State Street and was taken to the Winnebago County Animal Shelter on November 22nd.
Thanks to a microchip embedded in her skin, WCAS was able to trace Halloween back to her owners.
Halloween had originally lived with her military family in Georgia, but when they had to evacuate to South Carolina during a hurricane, Halloween became lost.
WCAS said they think Halloween had been taken care of over the last two years, because she appeared healthy and of good weight.
The family had since relocated to Elgin, Oklahoma and were thrilled to learn that Halloween had been found, the shelter said.
Transportation was eventually arranged to drive Halloween to Oklahoma to meet with her family, and she left Rockford on Thursday.
