It happens to AlphaPet staff as well!
Receptionist Becky Pullen's cat Brandy went missing over 2 years ago. Despite trying everything she could think of to find him, she'd pretty much given up hope of ever seeing him again.
Then one day, he was brought into our Bognor Hospital as a stray. Fortunately he was microchipped, so a quick scan confirmed his identity and here they are reunited!
Miracles do happen.
