Boots the cat reunited with owners after 5 years wandering around Newfields
EXETER — Boots, named for his white paws, has been reunited with his owners afters after five years of wandering around Newfields.
Rick and Renee Carmen's cat ran away about five years ago when their son brought his dog to their old home in Newfields. They have since moved to Exeter and was forced to leave without the cat, since he seemed vanish, according to Seacoastonline.
On Sunday morning, the Carmens received a call from Besty Coes, the operator of Cats 1st - a rescue shelter for feral and abandoned cats - telling them she had their cat. Apparently, Boots had been living in a barn in Newfields, where the residents put food out for him assuming he was a stray cat. Coes caught Boots and scanned him for a chip.
Renee Carmer was in disbelief but knew it was Boots. She retrieved the cat and brought him home to enjoy life as a house cat once again.
