One cat's owners had given up hope on ever seeing their pet again.
Lisa Gibbs bought Tink home as an eight-week-old kitten in 2014.
Tink went missing from Brundall, near Norwich, in 2017 and after having no luck tracing her, and hearing nothing for months, Ms Gibbs thought that she must be dead.
However, on June 4 Ms Gibbs received a phone call from a vet who said that somebody had brought in a seemingly stray cat that they had been feeding it. The cat was scanned and her microchip revealed she was the long-lost Tink.
Ms Gibbs said: 'We collected her straight away. It was very emotional and she came home and fitted straight back in. My two older children were so pleased as was myself and my partner.'
