Cat in the post.

Did anyone read this? How on earth do you 'accidently' seal a cat up in a box and not know it's there?
Something fishy about it if you ask me. Thankfully, the poor thing survived.

Yes, I saw this in the paper this morning. Must have been a pretty big box of DVD's to hide a cat in. Poor cat must have had a terrible time.

Yes I thought that was fishy. Mind you, a friend was moving house and had to keep checking the boxes for her cat. How she didn't pack him I'll never know. :? :lol:

Well, I suppose if it was very fishy, no wonder the cat got into the box! (Sorry, as the owner of a fish loving cat, I couldn't resist that)

I mean, didn't the cat struggle when the box was sealed up, or when they took it to the post or whatever. And surely the sorting office/carriers must have heard the poor thing meowing.
No, I think that the RSPCA or Cats Protection should investigate this. I reckon it was done deliberately for what sick reason only the 'loving and worried' owners know.

I certainly would NOT have returned the animal to them before a full enquiry had been carried out.
