Cat Reunited With Family After Wandering Over 200 Miles Away

MikoMiko had been missing since December.

This black and white cat disappeared after a fire started in Jade Schulte’s house in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The cat was nowhere to be found and Schulte had given up hope that she was never going to get her cat back.

But two weeks ago, Schulte received a call from someone in Pueblo, Colorado informing her that Miko was safe and sound.

“I was like, ‘Great I’ll pick her up!”‘ Schulte said. “I figured she was here at the shelter but they said, ‘We’re in Pueblo, Colorado,’ and I said, ‘How on earth did she get to Pueblo, Colorado?’ and they said ‘I don’t know, where are you?’ I said, ‘We’re in Albuquerque.”‘

Employees at the Pueblo shelter think that Miko got scared and tried to keep warm by hiding in a tractor-trailer and rode it up Interstate 25 to Colorado.

When employees at the Pueblo animal shelter found Miko, they scanned her microchip and traced her back to Schulte.

Donna Straub, head of Pueblo Animal Services, drove Miko to Santa Fe on Sunday. Rick DeReyes of Albuquerque’s Animal Welfare picked her up there and drove her to Albuquerque.

And now Miko is back home after her long road trip.

    They are so lucky it was shelter employees who had their cat. So many terrible things could have happened!
