When Thunder and his family moved house they did everything right. They settled him into his new home and kept him in the house to allow him to get used to his new surroundings.
Once they felt he was ready, they decided to let him go and explore outside. Thunder didn’t return home and after looking high and low for him, his owners thought that the worst must have happened and that they would never see him again. Some two and a half years later, Thunder’s owners received a phone call from a Companion Care surgery in Fareham. Someone who suspected Thunder was a stray had picked him up and taken him in. The practice team had checked him over and then scanned him for a microchip. To their relief he was microchipped and a quick phone call to Petlog revealed his name and family’s contact details. Thunder’s owner arrived at the surgery later that day and, to her amazement, there was her beloved Thunder.
She picked him up and he snuggled into her neck, giving her a big hug. Needless to say there wasn’t a dry eye in the surgery!
