Cat missing from Biloxi found more than 1,000 miles away in Colorado
BILOXI, MS (WLOX) –
Two years ago a Biloxi man’s cat went missing. Up until an unlikely phone call last week, the man never thought he’d see his furry friend again. Christina Garcia spoke to the recently reunited cat owner, who said he’s pretty sure his feline still has a few good lives left.
“I came home from work one day and he just wasn’t there. Looked for him obviously for a long time and just kind of gave up hope,” Cree Cantrell said about his pet cat Jacque.
It was two years ago that Cantrell said his adventurous cat went missing from his house boat in Biloxi.
“I always assumed that either he fell in the water, which he had done before or maybe a tourist or something walking on the beach picked him up,” Cantrell said.
What exactly happened to Jacque is still a mystery, but where the cat ended up, surprising.
The three-year-old cat was more than 1,000 miles north of Biloxi at a veterinarian clinic in Denver, Colorado. The clinic called Cantrell’s mother and she called her son.
Cantrell said, “I’m like, ‘What do you mean you found Jacque? This has been two years now.’ So I didn’t really know what she was talking about, but she explained to me that he was in Colorado. I couldn’t believe it. How’s a cat get up there?”
Thanks to a microchip the size of a grain of rice, Jacque’s identification information was scanned and he was brought back to Biloxi.
