Puss In Boot: Stowaway Cat Turns Up In Kent

A runaway tabby cat has survived a 2,000-mile journey from Turkey to Kent hidden in a lorry.
The six-week-old kitten used one of her nine lives to survive the gruelling road journey which began in the Turkish capital, Ankara.
The tabby, named Yonda, was only discovered nine days later when workers from logistics company Davies Turner emptied the delivery trailer at a depot in Dartford.
Another cat was also found on board, but was seriously ill and died.
Yonda has now been sent to the Animal Inn near Deal, Kent, where she will spend six months in quarantine.
Cats Protection, in Croydon, south London, plans to rehouse the feline and has launched an appeal for funds to pay for her quarantine costs.
Heather McCann, of Cats Protection, said: "Yonda has had quite a journey.
"She was apparently very timid and frightened at first, but thanks to the vigilance and kindness of everyone at Davies Turner, she is now doing well in the comfort of the Animal Inn.
