The coach had travelled from Pickering in North Yorkshire, making a brief stop at Leeming Bar, but it is not known at which point the moggy got on board. If he got on at the beginning of its journey, then he would have travelled for 100 miles!
|Do you have any information about Wendall?|
As the vehicle was undergoing maintenance, it was not being used by members of the public, so there was no one to witness the cat’s remarkable voyage.
After being found on the coach at Newcastle, the ginger puss was taken to Cats Protection’s Gildersome Homing Centre, where he was named Wendall – German for traveller.
The centre’s Deputy Manager, Catherine Hubbard, said: “We are appealing far and wide in the hope that Wendall’s original owners see this plea and come forward. If we haven’t heard from them by Thursday 29 March, we will be looking to rehome Wendall, so we really do urge anyone who recognises him to get in touch. As he was not microchipped, we have no way of tracing his owners.
“His fur was slightly matted when he came into care but he welcomed a brush with open paws. He has such a lovely temperament and is so sweet natured, which makes us think he must have a loving owner out there somewhere wondering where he is.”
If you have any information about Wendall, please contact Gildersome Homing Centre on 03000 121 505.
