Family thrilled to be reunited with cat after three years
WHEN Alicia Hall's cat Pancake disappeared in Granville three years ago, she and her family thought the worst.
Pancake was microchipped, so the family thought they would probably be reunited with their pet quickly - but as time passed, Alicia had to accept that her beloved cat was probably gone for good.
Little did she know, Alicia's pet had actually been found by another lady, who took her in and made her part of the family.
The woman looked after Pancake for two years but this week she took the cat to the vet, who discovered the cat was microchipped.
In the meantime, Alicia and her family had moved to the Gold Coast.
When Alicia received the phone call telling her that Pancake had been found, she was overcome with joy.
"I was so excited, I just couldn't stop crying."
Alicia's three children were also delighted to hear the news.
On Friday, Alicia drove from the Gold Coast back to Maryborough to be reunited with her beloved animal.
Alicia said the cat's personality hadn't changed at all.
"She hasn't changed, she's so affectionate and lovely."
Alicia said she would be sending updates on how Pancake was doing to the lady who had cared for her for two years.
