It turned out that Lucy lived with an elderly woman only five minutes from the Simpsons' house. When her new owner passed away, The cat was taken to the Animal Welfare League shelter. Shelter staff checked her microchip and learned the contacts of her former owners.

“Very rarely do cats come back after 11 years, which confirms the importance of microchipping your pets,” emphasized Animal Welfare League spokesman Craig Montgomery.

Now Lucy is back at home and lives with another family pet, a 17-year-old dachshund named Molly.
