Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

A cat called Tigger breaks our run of ‘Lost Cat’ posts

Making a welcome change from our usual reposting of ‘Lost Cat’ stories and appeals for information, a cat called Tigger was quickly reunited with his owner after his 130 miles trip to Aberdeen from the  Deldrige area of Livingston, after wandering into the back of a van while it was being loaded.

Fortunately, Tigger was both microchipped and recorded, so his owners were able to be traced.

After a meal and night in the cages at Aberdeen’s Drumoak Scottish SPCA rescue centre, Tigger was sent home:

The adventurous moggy hitched a ride to Aberdeen in the back of the vehicle from Livingston.

Two-year-old Tigger was handed in to the Scottish SPCA’s Aberdeenshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre after he was found by the driver following the trip.

Iain Binnie, 35, had been clearing furniture out of a relative’s home in the Dedridge area when Tigger jumped into the back of his hired van.

He returned to his home in Aberdeen but only discovered Tigger the following morning when he opened the van to find the cat sitting at the door meowing.

Mr Binnie took the feline stowaway to the rescue centre at Drumoak where staff were able to trace Tigger’s owner through his identity microchip.

At least this one was fairly safe, unlike those that manage to jam themselves somewhere under the bonnet, close to the engine for some heat, something still quite likely during the ‘lovely’ weather we are enjoying at the moment…

Good advice to save a hidden cat

What a nice change to be showing one of the SPCA’s appeal pics as a happy ending, instead of appealing for help to find a lost cat’s owners:
