Cat sur­vives box or­deal

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

A Si­amese cat named Cup­cake has sur­vived eight days cooped up in a box af­ter ac­ci­den­tally be­ing sent through the post by her Bri­tish own­ers. Cup­cake was in a box with an or­der of DVDs that was sent from Corn­wall in south­west­ern Eng­land to West Sus­sex in south-cen­tral Eng­land. The re­cip­i­ent found a badly de­hy­drated Cup­cake in the box along with the DVDs and con­tacted the Royal So­ci­ety for the Preven­tion of Cru­elty to An­i­mals for help. The RSPCA traced the own­ers through the cat’s mi­crochip. “We looked ev­ery­where for her,” owner Julie Bag­gott said yes­ter­day, adding that she felt ter­ri­ble about the cat’s or­deal. Vets said Cup­cake needed treat­ment but should re­cover.
