BEND, Ore. (AP) - Seven years after he disappeared, a cat named Brave has made it back to spend his last days with his family, thanks to a microchip.

KTVZ-TV reports (https://is.gd/4Y4hhY ) the 10-year-old cat was brought to the Humane Society of Central Oregon last Friday - and soon reunited with his owners since his microchip was linked to a cellphone number they still have.

Mark Reinecke soon claimed his cat at the Bend shelter but it was a bittersweet reunion. An exam and ultrasound showed a large abdominal mass that is most likely a cancerous tumor.

Now the family plans to give their pet comfort care to keep him happy during his final days.

Reinecke and his wife, Melissa Lande, say they lived in their old home for several years after Brave vanished but have moved twice since. The cat was found across town from the home where he last lived.

Reinecke says Brave is “really happy to be held” and even the new family dog is keeping an eye on him.
