Archived News - Pet Sitting
A nomadic cat called Tim who had lived as a stray for three years after supposedly climbing aboard a lorry headed for Hemel Hempstead has been reunited with his owners.
Tim was being fed by a Hemel Hempstead woman who contacted Eaton Bray-based petsitter Nina Cole of Nina's Nannies for Pets to help trace its owner.
Nina was able to organise temporary foster care for the cream and brown moggy, before Barton Lodge Veterinary Centre confirmed he was microchipped... and originally from Edgware in London.
Tim is thought to have boarded a lorry in Edgware three years ago which took him to Hemel Hempstead. Since then he had roamed free in the town, and by chance his owners have since moved to Hertfordshire and were tracked down in Stevenage.
Nina said: "Within an hour his owners were located and they were reunited that evening. Without the microchip Tim most certainly would never have been reunited with his owner, which emphasises how important it is to microchip your pet."
"Travelling Tim" is now safely home with his original owners.
