    Kitten travels from Ireland to England in a dumpster

    NewsUK Cat NewsFriday 14 October 2011

    A 2-week-old kitten survived a journey from Ireland to England trapped in a dumpster. The trip took five days and the kitten spent all the time, 166 miles from Ireland to northern England stuck in a dumpster full of cardboard.

    The tiny tabby tomcat was found among 200 tons of old cardboard at a recycling firm in Reddish, Manchester, after being buried in a 40-foot sealed container that was shipped across the Irish Sea from Dublin. The kitten was discovered by a recycling worker who called it Finley due to its Irish connections. 

    Finley is being treated now by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
