A stray cat was brought into VIPP and fortunately he had a micro-chip. This cat was Tinker - a kitty that had been on VIPP's Lost and Found page since 2009.
After being missing for over four years, Tinker was reunited with his owner, CIndy. She is a foster for the Seattle Humane Society. Tinker was one of her foster kittens which she decided to adopt back in 2009. He lost his eye to the herpes virus as a kitten and he was that way when Cindy adopted him. Tinker went missing when they were visiting a friend on Sandy Shores on Maury.
Somehow, he managed to get to Lisabeula where he lived as a stray fed by an elderly man who passed away in the spring. It will always be a mystery how Tinker managed to get so far away from home.
Tinker is going to be well loved and taken care of once again. The photos say it all.
