After the coronavirus pandemic hit and lockdown restrictions were imposed in the area , a concerned member of staff at the campsite came across Georgie and discovered her Rochdale origin after the microchip was scanned by an animal charity. Amy Davies, the cat’s owner, said: “We were heartbroken when Georgie didn’t come back on our last day at Loch Lomond. It was such a lovely surprise to hear that she was not only well but had seemingly been having a great time meeting campers.”
However, despite her delight, she said changes in her family’s circumstances meant that there would be no reunion. Georgie will remain at the Cats Protection Glasgow adoption centre until a new home can be found for her.
“My instinct was to jump in the car and collect Georgie straight away but we have another nine-year-old cat now,” said Davies.
Make Yourself the Funnest Thing in the World for a Reliable Recall. When training your dog to “come here” make sure you’re giving out a lot of praise & treats. The goal is to make coming back to you the best decision they could have made, if not your dog is likely going to decide that whatever he was chasing/sniffing is more interesting.
“When I spoke to the centre I knew our life now just wouldn’t suit Georgie as she doesn’t like other pets and needs space to come and go. It’s really sad that after all this time we won’t be reunited but I have to do what’s best for Georgie.”Lynsey Anderson, who works at Cats Protection Glasgow, said: “I could hear how much she wanted to come and see her but her concerns for Georgie’s happiness really shone through.
“We’re looking for a quiet home for Georgie where she can be the only cat, enjoy her space and have plenty of garden to explore. She’s very loving and enjoys human company so will make a brilliant companion.”The senior cat care assistant said the case highlighted the importance of keeping chip details up to date. Although the phone number in the chip was no longer active, an email and letter were sent to contact the owners. “We were amazed when we saw the Rochdale address on Georgie’s microchip,” said Anderson.
