    Rescued from the streets of Naples, Italy, when the former Bremerton man was stationed there with the Navy, Odie the cat was James Raasch's companion for more than a decade until she vanished a year ago. The Kitsap Sun reports the Kitsap Humane Society tracked Raasch down to tell him Odie had been found and identified by her microchip. The two were reunited Friday in Bremerton.

BREMERTON -- Rescued from the streets of Naples, Italy, when a former Washington man was stationed there with the Navy, Odie the cat was James Raasch's companion for more than a decade until she vanished a year ago.
He searched for her unsuccessfully in Bremerton and a few months ago moved to Davis, Calif.
The Kitsap Sun reported that picture changed this week when the Kitsap Humane Society tracked Raasch down to tell him Odie had been found and identified by her microchip.
Turns out she had joined a feral cat colony in East Bremerton. A woman who monitors the colony noticed this cat was different.
As Humane Society cat expert Tara Trezona puts it, "She was a cuddler." And the cuddler proved to have a chip.
Raasch was headed back to Kitsap County for a visit this weekend, and the two were reunited Friday.
