Bring Mellow Home

Donation protected
We had just moved to the Bay Area in 2011 after being stationed there when shortly after we moved in, Mellow got out.  We spent months looking for him, posting ads, even after our short term lease in Hayward was up and we moved to San Leandro in January 2012, we kept looking, driving around the area in hopes we would just see him strolling around. Unfortunately we never saw him again.... we could notice a change in our other cat who was clearly depressed from losing her best friend... we've had them both since they were 8 weeks old. The only hope we had was with Mellow being microchipped, that someone will eventually  scan him. We never received "the call" so we were heartbroken... In July 2015 we were stationed in Georgia and had to move away. Then out of nowhere, 2 days ago, we reiceved a call late at night from a weird number, I was hesitant to answer as we've been having issues with a lot of sales calls and we stopped answering our phones from numbers we don't recognize. But that time, we answered, and the moment the person mentioned "found cat" we knew exactly what that meant! Someone found Mellow!! I ran frantically to write down the finders number to give her a call and when I got a hold of her, I told her what had happened and that it's been nearly 6(!!!) years since we've last seen our Mellow!!! We were both overwhelmed with joy and just cried, we stayed on the phone for a good amount of time just talking about Mellow. Words can't express how thankful I am that this wonderful person noticed a friendly cat in her neighborhood and decided to get him scanned for a microchip!
She has already taken Mellow to the vet to get a check up and got him a round of shots since it's been so long since his last set.
We are currently trying to make arrangements to get Mellow from CA to GA. I'm asking for your donation to make this possible for us to bring Mellow back home. Any leftover money will be donated to a local rescue and vets office.
