When Georgia called her cat’s name, Mishka meowed and rubbed against her cheek.
Georgia Tsatsaris, a resident of Melbourne, Australia, lost her Birman cat named Mishka in 2010.
Georgia became very upset when her pet Mishka went missing.
She said she had left the cat in an enclosure, but when she returned in the evening, she couldn’t find him.
Mishka remained silent for a decade, but suddenly, an expert contacted her to inform her that Mishka had been located.
It turned out Mishka had been rescued by a construction worker who found her on a construction site in the Port Melbourne area.
He realized the cat needed immediate care and transported her to a nearby clinic in Melbourne.
At the clinic, the cat’s microchip was scanned, allowing them to contact her owners.
“She looked so thin and tired, but when she heard her name, she whispered a faint ‘meow’ and nuzzled my cheek,” said Georgia.
Mishka now needs to undergo treatment and a prolonged recovery process. Fortunately, the cat will no longer be alone.
“She spent a long period of her life on the streets and requires constant attention to treat the infection and regain her weight. Afterwards, she will go back home and spend the remaining years of her life in a warm and loving environment,” explained the grateful owner.
