Polly the inter-city kitty is on her final journey home after travelling 1700 miles around the South West, trapped under the carriage of a train. After two weeks at the vets, she is ready to be reunited with her owners at Plymouth Railway Station.
Kate Beech, a nurse at Rosvean Vets in Penzance, is travelling with the cat and says: 'she has made an excellent recovery. She's put on a kilo in a week and had all her stitches out. She's coping extremely well without her front leg'.
Electrical fault believed to be cause of cattery fire
Firefighters arrived and found the building well alight. The cattery owners stated that there had been over 20 cats in the cattery, however some are believed to have escaped from the building after the fire broke out.
The building has been destroyed as it was predominately a wooden structure and we've been unable to confirm so far how many cats have died in the fire.
A fire investigation was carried out to establish how the fire started and we believe an electrical fault within one of the pens is to blame.
