Gumdrop the cat reunited with her family

We just had a wonderful reunion at the Marin Humane Society!

Gumdrop the cat was reunited with the Dimmick family of Tiburon after missing for one year.

The Dimmicks went on vacation in February of 2013, when they returned, Gumdrop was gone. The last time they saw her was on February 20, 2013.

We don’t know how she traveled more than 15 miles to Novato, but luckily Gumdrop was rescued by feral cat caretakers and brought to the Marin Humane Society. Because Gumdrop has a microchip, we were able to locate her guardians to let them know that their beloved cat was safe and sound at MHS.

Gumdrop’s reunion reminds us of the importance of pet identification. You can get your dog, cat or rabbit microchipped for a nominal fee anytime during our business hours.

Gumdrop is on her way home to Tiburon, where she will also be reunited with her brother. What a “sweet” start to the New Year!
