When the truck arrived at its destination, the driver noticed something weird under the vehicle and told his workmates: ‘I think I hit and killed an animal, there’s something in there…” so they decided to take a closer look.
The truck driver initially thought Lucy was dead. The cat was motionless and unresponsive as they looked into the tiny gap between the rear wheel arches and the container that had been placed on the trailer for the journey.
But then, Lucy suddenly lifted up ‘his’ head, so they called for help. A couple of hours later, Lucy was taken to the local shelter where they found out the little stowaway was microchipped.
It turned out that Lucy was not a ‘she’ but a ‘he’, a 12-year-old male cat and that his home was hundreds of miles away.
Some of the microchip details were out of date, so it took a while to locate his family but after posting his picture on Facebook it turned out someone was missing Lucy!
Back at Lucy’s home, his dad was just beginning to wonder where Lucy had gone…
He’d inherited the kitty from his late mother, who insisted on calling him Lucy because she was convinced he was a she.

“Lucy is often going off and disappearing for a couple of days, and it was only Sunday evening that we were beginning to wonder where he might be. We let him out on Friday and he went missing. Then I saw a picture of him on Facebook and I definitely knew it was my cat,” Lucy’s dad said.
Lucy is now in good hands and will soon be reunited with his dad.
