Super cat Misty dies aged 116*
Rescued from Wembley Stadium
A CAT who was rescued after being dumped at Wembley Stadium in the 1980s has died after reaching the grand old age of 30.
Misty, whose age was equivalent to 116 in human years, has been spending her days in the company of owner Maureen Mullins, from West Drayton, who rescued her back in 1988.
Misty was two-yearsold at the time (13 in cat years) and missing many teeth when she was saved.
A devastated Maureen said: “It’s been terrible without her. I’m all right one minute and then the next I’m in tears, it’s awful.
“I really really miss her, she had such a nice personality, everyone loved her. She was a very affectionate cat, very loving. She wouldn’t hurt a fly.”
Maureen, 71, spent around £250 a month on food and medication for Misty, including tablets for thyroids, arthritis and steroid tablets for her liver and kidney, until she had to be put to sleep on June 29.
Maureen, who offers her services as a cat-sitter, currently has two rescued sister cats called Gizzy and Freddie.
She said: “I couldn’t live without a cat to be truthful. I’m absolutely potty on cats.”
Her mantelpiece is filled with condolence cards since the loss of Misty, including from her vet.
“I can’t bring myself to look at Misty’s ashes yet. They’re at my daughter’s house but eventually I’ll have her buried.”
