The following article, Mischievous Moggy Joins Neighbors' Holiday, Surprises Caravan Owners, was first published on Flag And Cross.
A stowaway cat joined its neighbors on holiday after hiding in their caravan – for 350 miles.
Bonnie the black and white moggy traveled from Horncastle in Lincolnshire all the way to south Devon.
Janet and Paul Atkinson drove south in their caravan – unaware their neighbor’s cat was onboard.
Bonnie had at some point got inside – and only revealed itself after they returned from dinner at a local restaurant.
After recognizing Bonnie “straight away” as being owned by their neighbor, Stephanie, they soon realized what had happened.
Bonnie has since been staying at facilities run by local charity Animals in Distress, where photos show she has been settling in nicely.
Janet said: “We recognized the cat straight away as a cat from our local village.
”I took a photo and shared it on our local community group back home.
”We found out that the cat – called Bonnie – belonged to our neighbor Stephanie.
“We didn’t think we could keep Bonnie in the caravan with us all week in case he escaped, so I spent the next day ringing around all the local boarding catteries to find him a safe place for the week.
”But none of them were able to house him as he was not up to date with his vaccinations.
“Thankfully, when I rang Animals in Distress they were able to take him as an emergency boarder for the week.
“We think Bonnie had as much of a lovely holiday in Devon as we did!
”When we picked him up at the end of the week to take him back home, his fur was gleaming.
”It was a nice outcome to what could have been a very stressful situation for us. ”
Bonnie has since made the journey back to Lincolnshire with the couple and returned home.
His owner, Stephanie, said: “We think Bonnie had a really lovely holiday in Devon.
”He must have enjoyed the peace and quiet away from the dogs.
“When he got home he went first of all to say hello to his brother Clyde, before going out to check his kingdom was all still as he’d left it.
“After that, he came back and went to sleep looking very pleased with himself. He’s been on his holidays, even though we haven’t.
“He has settled right back in, and we are just so glad to have got him back.”
Lisa Saunders, cattery manager at Animals in Distress, said Bonnie spent “a lovely week in his luxury pen in our cattery, being spoiled by the team.”
