Cat That Went Missing In California In 2011, Shows Up In North Texas And Is Reunited With Family

ALLEN, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) - Ten years and hundreds of miles later, a long-lost cat that turned up in the Allen Animal Shelter was reunited with his family.

Chuck the cat wandered off from his family home in California in 2011.

After a long search, the family figured they would never see Chuck again.

In 2020, they moved to Colorado.

But Chuck, who was microchipped, showed up in Allen and the family drove down to get him.
