Swizzle reunited with owners for Christmas

A cat that was missing for more than a year has been reunited with his owners in the UK.

Swizzle disappeared from his Bermuda home in March 2013 and as the months passed owners, Jon and Naomi Smyth, gave up hope of ever seeing him again.

But now, a year-and-a-half later and after the couple had returned to England, the tabby cat has been reunited with the Smyths.

Swizzle turned up at the airport last month after a Bermuda Feline Assistance Bureau (BFAB) feeder noticed him living as a stray at the airport.

BFAB was able to trace Swizzle thanks to the microchip that the Smyths had fitted when they adopted him as a kitten.

He was looked after by BFAB and checked over by vets before flying to the UK on Friday night.

The family pet was reunited with his owners at Gatwick Airport on Saturday morning.

The Smyths posted a picture of the reunion on Facebook with Mrs Smyth saying: “He's recovered from the long journey and is happily making himself at home.”
