Batman went missing back in 2009 when he was 6 years old after his owner moved house. Despite his owner’s best efforts, after months of searching, there was still no sign of him.
Now EIGHT YEARS later we have been able to reunite Batman with his family! He was brought into the practice by a member of the public, whose house he had been visiting, because he had a nasty abscess on his cheek; most likely caused by a cat bite.
After it was mentioned to our veterinary surgeons that he just turned up one day, we scanned him for a microchip and were able to find his owner’s details!
We are pleased to say that Batman who is now 14, is back home with his family ( which has grown since hes been away ) and has settled straight back in, like he had never been away. Included is a photo of him snoozing on the bed.
Quote from his owner ” Our head butting, cuddly boy is home! …. Miracles can happen!”
We do love a happy ending
