Ashley Aleman and her family, who currently live in Watsonville, California, were not expecting to see their brown female tabby cat, BooBoo, ever again.

BooBoo went missing four years ago.

“We gave up looking and when we got this phone call it was completely out of the blue, nothing that we had ever expected,” Aleman told CBC News.

This month, BooBoo turned up in Morriston in Puslinch Township, just south of Guelph, Ont., and was turned over to the Guelph Humane Society (GHS).

“We thought that maybe BooBoo was originally from California and the owners moved to Canada and forgot to change the microchip information,” said Melissa Stolz, the animal program and intake coordinator for the GHS.

“But when we found out that no, they were all still in California, they lost the cat in California and somehow this cat ended up in Canada, is just baffling.”
