D.C. Council member Mary Cheh is happy to have her cat back after he escaped from her home without his regular collar over the weekend.

Cheh said Winston often tries to run out of the house. This time, he was turned in to the Animal Rescue League, which traced him back to Cheh thanks to the electronic chip inserted under his skin.

The D.C. Humane Society said it impounds about 4,500 stray animals each year. Only about 10 percent of those animals are returned to their owners.

The Humane Society encourages pet owners to use both collars and chips.
