Dutchess County Woman And Her Missing Cat Are Reunited After Eleven Years


(Dutchess County, NY) -- A Dutchess County woman is being reunited with a furry friend she lost over a decade ago. Maggie Welz's cat Tiger escaped from her home eleven years ago and never came back. However, the cat began visiting the home of Carol O’Connell who works for the Dutchess SPCA several years ago. 

Because the brown tabby appeared to be deteriorating, she found a way to get ahold of him and used the SPCA's microchip scanner to find out Tiger belonged to Welz. Welz and Tiger were reunited last week. Welz said she's grateful to have her companion back.
