(4/14/12) A cat took quite a ride from Minnesota's Twin Cities to Madison.
A five-year-old tabby named Leon crawled into the engine compartment of a car that left Minneapolis-Saint Paul Thursday morning. That was when a Twin Cities couple was heading east on vacation. When they got to Tomah on I-94, they could hear loud meowing – but the couple thought the cat was under another vehicle. When they hit the road again, the meowing sound continued – so the couple stopped the car and found Leon under the hood. When they got to Madison, they dropped the cat off at the Dane County Humane Society's shelter. Leon had an I-D around his neck – and he had a microchip under his skin that provided information about the owner. So the Humane Society had no problem tracking down the owner from Webster Minnesota. The society wouldn't give out the names of those involved – but they said the owner was grateful. By the way, next week is National Pet I-D Week. Contact your local Humane Society to learn more on how to properly ID your pet.
