Microchipped Cat Reunited With Owners After 8 Years

Ginger the orange tabby cat was just a kitten when she went missing from her home eight years ago in Novato, California. Where she's been over the years remains a mystery, but recently she showed up at a Navato man's shop for food. The shop owner had been feeding her for about two months when he decided to take the cat to the Marin Humane Society for a checkup—and much to his surprise, the cat was microchipped.
