Good luck as black cat returns home after five years missing
AND where do you think you've been?
Harriet the black cat, affectionately known as "Harry", has re-emerged almost five years after disappearing on the Sunshine Coast.
Her original owner, Lisa Woods, was tracked down by Harry's microchip and told the good news at her new home in Victoria.
"It's great to know Harry's all right and from what I've been told she's in good condition, so I imagine someone has been looking after her all this time," she said.
The sad news is that Lisa can't take the feline back as she and her husband now have two cats and a dog.
Harry went missing the night before Lisa and her husband relocated.
She and fellow adventurer Lloyd took off into the night and were never seen again, despite friends and family searching high and low.
Julie Penlington, from 4 Paws, is hoping to find a new home for Harry, and said her story was a timely reminder to keep pets' microchip details up to date.
"It's a common problem that pets can't be reunited because their owner hasn't updated their contact or address details," she said.
She also said she had seen cases where animals had been reunited after being missing for 10 years.
Harry's fellow escapee Lloyd is still at large, but hopefully Lisa won't have to wait another five years to hear good news about him.
