A cat had a narrow escape after climbing into a box which was posted from Cornwall to West Sussex. Cupcake, an eight year-old Siamese, survived eight days in the box of second-hand cds and dvds, which was mailed from Falmouth to a company in Goring-by-Sea - 260 miles away.
The RSPCA was called after the company came across the unusual cargo. She was taken straight to the vets and scanned for a microchip which led to the feline being reunited her with her owner.
“Poor Cupcake was very lucky to survive. When I arrived she was very weak and fragile. She had been trapped in the box for around eight days and was in a dehydrated and very hungry state.
“Luckily, she made a quick recovery, and had been microchipped so I was able to scan her and track her owners down.
“It just goes to show how important it is to microchip your pets, and keep the details updated. Without this there is no way I would have known where she came from and her owners might still be frantically searching for her.”
