Cash flow­ing in for dead ‘bus stop cat’

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

NEARLY £3,000 has been raised in mem­ory of a “bus stop cat” which cap­tured the hearts of pas­sen­gers be­fore it was found with “hor­rific in­juries”.

The ginger cat, called Missy, was found close to death by its owner Richard McCormick af­ter what is be­lieved to have been a sav­age at­tack at the bus stop.

The 13-year-old fe­line was taken to a vet and had to be put down af­ter it was found to have suf­fered a frac­tured skull, bro­ken jaw and its teeth knocked out.

The tragedy has prompted peo­ple who loved to see Missy at the No.39 bus stop in Ha­vant, Hamp­shire, to do­nate to­wards a plaque in the cat’s mem­ory.

Any money left over from the fundrais­ing cam­paign will be given to char­ity.
