Couple Goes on Vacation for 11 Days with a Cat in the Trunk of their Car

03_23012628_ef2692_2882862aWillow the cat has miraculously survived being trapped in a car at Manchester Airport for eleven days. A couple were shocked to find the poor tabby cat, dehydrated and emaciated, in the trunk of their car after they returned from vacation. Apparently Willow – a neighbor’s cat – had climbed in while they were loading their bags.

She’d gone the entire 11 days without any food or water. Police said the cat ‘didn’t look well at all’ and was taken by airport staff to the emergency vet for treatment. Other than being severely dehydrated, Willow was in surprisingly good health! Fortunately, she had a microchip and was returned to her owner, Ellen Ferguson – who had reported her missing days earlier and were thrilled to have her back. Though, she did say Willow was “grounded, indefinitely.”

Willow is eating and drinking and doing very well.

Just when this dog-eat-dog world has handed you all the poop you can take, it's time to walk the dog. Or wash the dog. Or feed the dog. You get the idea. So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
