Cree Cantrell is reunited with his missing cat Jacques


A cat missing from Biloxi, MS for two years was identified by his microchip when he was brought to a Denver, CO vet clinic recently. Jacques is now back home.

Jacques disappeared one day about two years ago from his owner Cree Cantrell’s house boat in Biloxi.

“I came home from work one day and he just wasn’t there. Looked for him obviously for a long time and just kind of gave up hope,” Cree Cantrell told a local WLOX reporter.

“I always assumed that either he fell in the water, which he had done before or maybe a tourist or something walking on the beach picked him up,” Cantrell said.

Cantrell got a call from his mother recently, telling him she’d received a call from a veterinary clinic in Denver that had identified Jacques when they did a microchip scan on him.

How Jacques ended up more than 1,300 miles from home is a mystery, and the cat is not talking.

Cantrell said, “I’m like, ‘What do you mean you found Jacque? This has been two years now.’ So I didn’t really know what she was talking about, but she explained to me that he was in Colorado. I couldn’t believe it. How’s a cat get up there?”

Jacques is back home in Biloxi with Cantrell now.

Cantrell said Jacques is microchipped because the humane society suggested it when he brought the cat to be neutered, and he’s glad he had it done.
