Florida resident Pamela Edwards was certain her new cat had been eaten by an alligator. She adopted 3-year-old Cheyenne from her local animal shelter in the summer of By Thanksgiving that year, the cat had disappeared from Edwards' condominium in Bradenton on Florida's west coast. She hung flyers and ran in the newspaper, received no response and concluded the worst.
Cheyenne was just a distant memory when Edwards got a call from her county shelter three weeks ago. The cat had been found -- 3, miles away, in San Francisco.
When workers scanned her for a microchip and found she had been lost in Florida seven years earlier, they wondered if it was a gag. The more probable, if prosaic, explanation is that a former neighbor of Edwards' found the cat, decided to keep her, then moved to San Francisco.
No one has contacted Animal Care and Control claiming to be Cheyenne's owner. And because the microchip identifies Edwards as the owner, she retains legal rights to the cat, Campbell said. The animal shelter in Manatee County, Fla. Lost pets that had chips implanted there have been found as far away as Germany, he said. Most animals don't come from farther than Sacramento.
Animal Care and Control is trying to find a way to return Cheyenne, now almost 10 years old, to Edwards. Campbell said Edwards wouldn't be on the hook, but the agency can't afford to ship Cheyenne cross-country and has been searching for a traveler to carry her by plane.
Edwards hopes to get Cheyenne back. But she also has some concern about how the cat will feel about a reunion, given that the family has picked up three cats since Cheyenne left town.Lost cat san francisco
