Letting the cat out of the bag (literally)

10 April 2016 - A pet cat has survived eight days in the post, trapped in a box of DVDs. The cat named Cupcake climbed into the parcel before it was taped up and sent 250 miles from Cornwall to West Sussex, leaving her owner "looking everywhere" for her.

The pair were reunited after the Siamese cat was unwrapped in Worthing and had her microchip scanned.

Owner Julie Baggott said it was "a miracle" her pet survived the jaunt, which vets said left her dehydrated and scared but otherwise unhurt.
