Pease praised the Ghesquieres for not only implanting a microchip, but for driving up from New York City to pick up their cat. In many cases, people separated from their cats for weeks will simply adopt another cat and tell the shelter they’ve moved on.

“I’m going to keep an eye on him all the time,” Lynn Ghesquiere said, gazing down lovingly at the cat she held in her lap.
For his part, Gus seemed unmoved by his owner’s declaration as he kept his eyes focused on the floor and his tail noticeably still.
