Reminder: Update your pet’s microchip information if you move

The Daily Mail UK had a photo-filled story about the mystery of the travelling tabby. But the mystery looks to have a answer – plane, boat? Nope. It’s far more mundane than we’d hoped.

Mystery of cat ‘from Canary Islands’ found in Scotland solved – Home News – UK – The Independent.

The mystery moggie, named Juanita by vets who took her in, was found in a garage in Muchalls, near Aberdeen, on Thursday.

The tabby’s microchip was traced to Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands, leading to speculation that she could have slipped onto a Ryanair flight from the tourist hotspot.

It emerged that her owner, Fiona Prati, lives in Bridge of Don, Aberdeen, and had not updated the cat’s registration after emigrating to Scotland.

So she was only 15 miles from her actual home.
