From September 2019 to September 2022. This is the time a cat called Walter White will have passed away from his family, before a moving reunion allowed by his identification chip. A story told by CBC.
3 years ago, Nikky Barks and his family had just moved. Her cat wasn’t used to venturing outside, but when it did, it didn’t stay away for long and eventually found its way home. With the move, however, the feline adopted in 2016 found himself in a completely unknown environment during one of his rare outings. He had remained untraceable since, despite the incessant searches of his mistress.
All were saddened by the absence of Walter Whiteespecially the youngest son of Nikky Barkswho was extremely attached to him.
They smiled again on September 29 when they heard the incredible news from the SPCA of Saskatoon (province of Saskatchewan in Canada). It was on that day that an employee of the shelter called the mother of the family to explain to her that her cat had just been admitted there. He had been identified by his chip.
Walter White had been discovered by 2 women in their garden. As it was starting to get cold, they had decided to take him to the shelter.
