It is not my Cat, I don't live in Middlebury but I shop there.

Spreading the word as I know how heartbreaking and scary a lost Pet can be.

ROMAN/THOMAS, a lost CAT, is missing

Fingers and toes crossed he comes home safe. I will be on the lookout as I run my errands.

You're welcome. I've seen my Middlebury contacts spreading the word. We're all hoping to hear this kitty has been found safe.

Just checked back and it says....

The good news is this pet has already been reunited with its family.

not sure how long he was missing but glad he found home.

Wow! That's a blessing. I always shudder when I see a photo of a lost pet, because more often than not, there isn't a happy ending. We've kept many animals over the years and only one went missing that was never accounted for. I like to think that Chuck is still out there enjoying life somewhere. He was the friendliest, fluffiest, happiest orange tabby I ever saw. And we get so attached to them all.

Yes! Thank you for the happy update. I feel so sad when any animal is lost or homeless. Shelters say lost cats reunite with their families at a rate of less than 10%, so this is fantastic.

It always upsets me to hear of a lost pet. Unless pets are microchipped, they rarely find their way home.

All my cats are microchipped, even though they are indoor cats. I had them microchipped before I made the trip with them up to Vermont. I also put ID collars on them for the trip. But now that they are in their Vermont home, they no longer wear their collars.

Some people feel that even indoor cats should wear ID collars at all times.

Microchips can't fall off or be removed. And shelters routinely check for them (hopefully).

When long-lost pets are returned to their owners, as reported in several news stories, it is because the animals were identified by their microchips.

I'm so glad that this story had a happy ending.

Same here. I agree with you about chipping cats. The risk of their being lost and not reunited with family is far greater than the possible risks associated with chipping.
