We're used to putting our kitties in their cat boxes when they're due a check-up at the vets but when we travel long distances, many of us tend to leave our furry friends at home. This little moggy, though, seemed keen for adventure and ended up a whopping 130 miles from home.

A travelling kitty

When the driver of the car pulled up at their destination in East London, passersby claimed they could hear meowing coming from the car. The driver opened the bonnet and sure enough a cat was curled up in the engine compartment.

People in the flats nearby called the Celia Hammond charity and took care of the cat until she could be rescued.

A social search

The trust has since been scouring “missing cat” posts on Facebook and other social media sites on a bid to find the kitty.

The cat is thought to be very sweet and friendly but understandably a little frighted.

Ms Hammond said,

"The people who were there were more interested in getting the cat safe and didn't ask the man where in Birmingham he had come from and he didn't stay very long. It would be great if we could find the owner but it is a real needle in a haystack story. We have no idea where the cat has come from at all.”

A happy ending?

All we can say for sure is that someone in the Birmingham area is desperately sad about their missing kitty. We're hoping we can help spread the word and get this pretty kitty reunited with her family. If you know of anyone who's lost their cat then share story with them.

Hopefully, we'll be posting a very happy ending to this story soon.
