Cat Found Living in Skip Eight Months After Owners Emigrated


A family in Bridgend, Wales, were recently reunited with their cat, Tommy, after he was discovered living in a skip eight months after they moved to Spain.

The family had left Tommy with relatives while they settled into their new home overseas but, upon returning to collect him, they discovered he had gone missing.

Despite searching extensively for their pet, they eventually accepted that they may never see him again and returned to Spain with only his sister, Maisie.

The family will soon be reunited with their pet, with plans for him to be couriered to the airport and flown to Spain to start a new life in the sun.


Tommy’s story is a heartwarming reminder of the strong bond between pets and their owners.

It is remarkable that he was able to survive for so long on the streets, especially given his age of twelve.
