Sid the Cat back Home 3 Years Later

Sid the cat, lost for three years found

Sid is one lucky black cat.

Lost three years ago from his home in Lanarkshire, Scotland, his family assumed they’d never see him again when they later moved to Devon, England.

This week he was found with a fractured jaw and taken to the Scottish SPCA’s shelter in Lanarkshire.

He was scanned for a chip on intake, when it was discovered he belonged to Allan and Maxine Mullen who had since moved to England.

Mrs Mullen said, “It’s a miracle we’ve been reunited with Sid after all these years and we still can’t believe it.

“Sid recognised us straight away when we came to pick him up and it’s just so great to have him back in our lives.”

“It was devastating when he went missing and when we moved to England we didn’t expect to see him ever again.

Scottish SPCA assistant manager Lorraine Alba who was happy to find his guardians said, “We were able to contact his owners straight away, who were delighted to hear he had been found.

“It’s likely he has been living as a stray for the past few years but we can’t be sure how he sustained his injuries.

“We are so pleased we could reunite Sid with his family after such a long time away from home.”
