Cat, owner reunited after a year 貓與飼主在一年後團圓

A Massachusetts woman whose cat ran away nearly a year ago said the feline turned up in a foreclosed Boston home.
Addie Mathews, 19, of Lexington, said Sparky the cat ran away at the age of 7 months while she was visiting friends in Boston, the Boston Globe reported Tuesday.

"There was no sign of him," she said. "I was just really hoping that someone had taken him in, because he’s a really friendly cat."
The Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said the coal-black cat was found in a bank-owned property a few weeks ago, apparently left behind by the former owners of the house when the property went into foreclosure. The cat was brought to the MSPCA Feb. 28 and a scan of the microchip embedded in Sparky’s skin led them to Mathews.
