Lost Cat Found Alive 12 Years Later
A California couple was shocked to discover that their missing cat, Butters, had been living for over a decade after he disappeared.
Angelo and Shelley Castellino from San Diego thought their cat was gone forever when he didn’t return home one day. They assumed that coyotes had attacked him. However, Butters was recently spotted in Blythe, California, over 200 miles away from his original home.
Dalton Churchwell, an animal control officer in Riverside County, found Butters in his backyard and discovered that he had gone missing from the Castellino family in 2011. A microchip scan confirmed his identity.
The Castellinos, who have since moved to Washington, couldn’t believe it when they received a call about their long-lost cat on their anniversary. Butters was reunited with his family with the help of a volunteer from the Animal Solutions Konnection (ASK) Foundation.
The ASK Foundation, a non-profit organization, covered the cost of Butters’ flight to Seattle, where the reunion took place. Both the Castellinos and the foundation are thrilled to have Butters back home.
The couple emphasized the importance of microchipping pets, stating that it played a crucial role in reuniting them with their prodigal kitty.
