Spaz is finally back with his petmom Linda Edwards after 12 years, thanks to the good Samaritan who picked him up and took him to a vet and his microchip.

Staff at West Flamingo Animal Hospital in Las Vegas, NV were thrilled to find the senior kitty’s original family and to be able to reunite him with Ms. Edwards, who lives 15 miles away from the area where Spaz was found.

A chip scan led to Ms. Edwards, who has maintained the same phone number since Spaz’s microchip was registered. She got the unexpected call Monday night and came to the animal hospital to pick up her long lost pet.

West Flamingo Animal Hospital wrote about Spaz at Facebook on Monday, saying: “A good Samaritan found a kitty wandering around in the area of Decatur and Flamingo on Sun. They brought him here. We scanned him for a microchip and we were able to track down his owner. The kitty, whose name is Spaz, has been missing for 12 years!!!”

“He was found near our clinic but his people were in North Las Vegas. For a 17 year old cat he’s in pretty good shape.”

Ms. Edwards appears with Spaz in the report below, from KSNV News 3, and her surprise and elation at reclaiming Spaz, who she’d long given up on ever seeing again, is evident.
