Twelve years ago, the Davies family’s cat Georgie went missing at a campsite by Scotland’s Loch Lomond. The cat has now been found, but instead of a joyful reunion, it appears the animal won’t be returning to her original Manchester home.
According to the Guardian, Georgie, aged three when her owners last saw her, visited the campsite with the family in 2008, before going missing. After an unsuccessful search, the Davies family left the area, hoping someone would chance upon the stray.
Over the years, it turns out the cat was fed and provided for by camp staff at the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park site, becoming a beloved member of the team. However, with things slowing down due to COVID-19, and a lockdown in place, it appears Georgie had run short on would-be carers. Feeling sorry for her, a member of staff decided to have the cat’s microchip scanned by a local animal charity. The phone number linked to the chip was no longer active, but an email and letter were sent to the Davies family.
