When Erin Nardis and her husband Adam’s cat vanished from their recently acquired residence in Florida seven years ago, they never imagined they would be reunited with her, let alone after such a lengthy period.
The couple had just moved into a new house, and their cat, named Capri, was not yet acquainted with the surroundings. One fateful day, she slipped out of the house, leaving her owners frantic with worry. Despite their tireless search efforts, Capri remained elusive. As time passed, hope dwindled, and it seemed unlikely that they would ever see their beloved feline companion again.
Unbeknownst to Erin and Adam, Capri had been discovered by another family who, unaware of her microchip, decided to keep her. However, circumstances changed when they lost their home during Hurricane Ian, compelling them to surrender Capri to the Lee County Domestic Animal Services.
In a remarkable twist of fate, the Nardis recently discovered that Capri had been residing just moments away from their restaurant, unbeknownst to them all these years. The animal services scanned Capri for a microchip and successfully located the Nardis, delivering the long-awaited news that their missing cat had been found.
Overwhelmed with disbelief, the couple was stunned to learn that their cherished feline had been located nearly a decade after disappearing from their lives.
Erin hopes that their extraordinary tale will inspire others to microchip their pets and, if they encounter a lost animal, to first consider the possibility that someone may be desperately searching for their beloved companion before deciding to keep them.
