"Felix," a black cat that wandered away from the Swanson family about three years ago,  is found and returned to them.  

 

Angelina Swanson says they got Felix as a kitten and had him for about nine months before he disappeared. 

 

Fast forward three years, and a resident that lives about 12 miles from Bend said the cat kept showing up at their house; going through the cat door, so they called the Humane Society of Central Oregon who took it in.

 

The shelter scanned Felix for a microchip and found his original owners, the Swansons.

 

Shelter spokesperson Karen Burns says this proved how valuable microchipping your pet can be:  “Many cats refuse to wear collars, so it's that piece of is that's always there; it can't be removed. as long as you keep it up to date and registered, as the family did, there's always a chance you're going to get your animal back."
