    Cat found in Bristol bus station after a 100 mile drive

    NewsUK Cat NewsFriday 14 March 2014

    A few days ago, coach driver Andy Muskett unloaded travellers’ luggage from his National Express coach at Bristol Bus Station when he heard a meow.

    At first he thought a naughty passenger had sneaked a pet on board but on further investigation he realised the noise was coming from underneath the 40ft coach.

    After kneeling to get a good look he realised that a small silver tabby cat was looking back at him from on top of the fuel tank.

    The kitten was behaving friendly despite having burns on its legs after a 100 mile drive. That's a four hours journey!.

    The cat, thought to be aged between one and three, had curled up on the warm tank to sleep when the vehicle was parked up overnight before it set off on its 8.45am Westward Ho in Devon to Grimsby service.

    The company has contacted the Bristol branch of the RSPCA in Albert Road, St Philips, which has given the cat treatment for his minor burns and are determined to reunite him with his owner.

    The cat has been conveniently named Diesel.

    If anyone has any information about Diesel, or thinks he is theirs, should call the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018.
