OLDSMAR, Fla., Jan. 3 (UPI) -- A Florida woman said her decision to remain hopeful for the return of her missing cat after two years was rewarded when she was reunited with the feline.
Deitra Jones of Oldsmar, Fla., said while her Himalayan named Fluff disappeared during the holiday season two years ago, she never gave up hope that one day she and her furry pet would be back together, WFTS-TV, Tampa, Fla., reported Saturday.
Jones admitted she was so desperate to find her beloved pet, she even contacted a pet psychic for help.
A supervisor at Hillsborough County Animal Services said a woman turned Fluff in recently, claiming she only had the cat for the last few weeks and was unable to care for the animal anymore.
Animal services supervisor Melvin Dean said a microchip implanted in Fluff provided information regarding the cat's true owner and the long-awaited reunion between human and feline took place.
"I have been here for 17 years. This chip literally has brought dozens of pets and their owners back together. There have been a lot of happy reunions that I have seen," Dean told WFTS.
