A cat has been reunited with his family 10 years after he vanished. It’s all because of some dedicated cat-loving volunteers and modern technology.
Oliver was two years old when he got out of his family’s home in northwest suburban Lake Zurich. The family thought poor Oliver had been hit by a car. But stories about Oliver’s demise were premature.
On Saturday night, Kim Vonesh and other volunteers who trap cats so they can be neutered and released, saw a security guard feeding Oliver and other cats.
“Six years she’s been feeding him,” Vonesh says. “How does that happen?”
The volunteers got the cats to the PAWS Chicago animal shelter, where folks there found Oliver had a microchip -– and a family. On Monday night, Laura Kleban – who was 17 when Oliver vanished — saw her cat for the first time in a decade.
