Microchip reunites owner and lost kitten after two years

It was supposed to be a short trip for Hayley from Livermore to Humboldt County to visit friends with Jasmine, her cat along for the ride. Jasmine was Hayley’s best friend and Hayley didn’t like leaving Jasmine alone for any length of time. While traveling through Ukiah, Hayley had to make a quick pit stop at Starbucks on Perkins Street to get coffee and use the facilities. While Jasmine normally rides in her carrier, Hayley let Jasmine out in the car to stretch her legs. Thinking she was careful to open and close the car door quickly so Jasmine couldn’t escape, Hayley ran into Starbucks not realizing that Jasmine had snuck out the door into the night. When Hayley got back in the car, she found that Jasmine was gone.
