Tigger is reunited with his family following a 25 mile trip in a dustbin lorry

A cat which is believed to have taken a 25 mile trip to a recycling centre in the back of a dustbin lorry has been reunited with his owners.

 
PRLog - Jan. 27, 2011 - HUNTINGDON, U.K. -- A cat which is believed to have taken a 25 mile trip to a recycling centre in the back of a dustbin lorry has been reunited with his owners.
Tigger went missing from his family home in Western Heights, Stevenage on November 15 last year - on the morning of the weekly recycling collection.
The eight-year-old tabby was not seen again until two months later when he was handed into Wood Green Animal Shelters in Heydon by a member of the public who found him wandering around Thriplow.
Tigger’s owner Sam Ayres who was reunited with her pet on January 25 now believes he may have taken the 25 mile journey in the recycling lorry to Thriplow.
She said: “When Tigger went missing we put up posters and searched the area but no one had seen him. After about a month we started to give up hope that he would return so we were over the moon when we got the call to say he had been taken to Wood Green.
“When we discovered he was found in Thriplow it clicked that he went missing on the day of the recycling collections and it is likely that he travelled there with the refuse collectors!
“Tigger seems very happy to be home with his friends Coco and Flower and we are delighted to have him back. I am just so glad that he and all of my cats are microchipped. Otherwise I may never have seen him again.”
Heydon Shelter Manager Gay Baxter said: “We were delighted to be able to reunite Tigger with his family, who were clearly worried about his welfare.
“This story stresses the importance of micro-chipping a pet. Micro-chipping is a simple procedure which sees a tiny device implanted under the skin which, when scanned, reveals a code number, unique to each cat and owner.
“This means that should a cat or dog go missing, their owners can be identified quickly and easily.”
