Cat Survives 260-Mile, Eight-Day Journey Through The Mail

This cat definitely used a few lives on this adventure. A Siamese cat living in Falmouth, England, defied the odds after falling asleep inside a shipping box filled with DVDs. The cat, named Cupcake, was sent through the mail and arrived eight days later in West Sussex, some 260 miles away. Cupcake was dehydrated and nervous but otherwise ok. Since Cupcake had a microchip, the person who received the box was able to find Cupcake’s owner, Julie Baggott. Baggott said she’d been searching frantically for her cat, adding, “I feel terrible about what’s happened, because I put everything in the box and sealed it straight away so I don’t know how she managed to get in there.” (UPI)
