Alrighty then....

So this morning while getting ready for my New York trip, hubby came in from walking the dogs and said "I thought I was picking up Joppa today?"

Me- You are.
Hubby- Well he's right there.
Me- Where'd he come from?
Hubby- Outside.

Apparently Joppa was never at the Humane Society...he is dirty and dusty, but seems okay.  I'm assuming he was shut in a garage or shed somewhere. I have no idea who the cat at the Humane Society is. I can almost bet the microchip place never closed out the case from the last time he was missing..and just saw a scan from there and never checked the date.
But he's home and safe and I'm halfway to NY.
