A remarkable animal story happened only a few days ago in the United Kingdom. A cat that had been lost for more than seven months was reunited with her family under the most incredible of circumstances.
When a cat stormed the soccer field while the owners were watching the game live on television, they were alarmed. It turned out to be their long-lost cat after all!
Earlier this month, a cat ran onto the pitch during an English third-tier football match between Sheffield Wednesday and Wigan Athletic. The game was called off.
It didn’t take long until one of the players was able to capture the cat, which seemed to be a stray, and transport her to the spectator stands. However, the most remarkable part of the narrative was still to come.
The cat was picked up by a veterinarian who was watching the game from the stands at Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield, England. The animal was brought to his clinic.
She seemed to be injured, yet she appeared to be in excellent health. She even had a microchip, so the veterinarian knew it would be much simpler to locate her owners if she went missing. The cat stayed in the clinic for the remainder of the day.
Allison Jubb’s daughter-in-law was watching the soccer game and was certain that the “pitch invasion cat” looked precisely like the family’s cat, Topsey, who had gone missing a few months earlier, so she contacted her mother-in-law to report the sighting.
“My daughter-in-law called me last night when they were watching the football game to tell me that there was a cat on the football field,” Allison explains. “It was something I kind of laughed off.” The lady believed her cat, Topsey, had vanished forever, and she had given up hope of ever seeing him again. In the end, it came out that it was the same cat after all.
“She went missing in June,” a lady told the BBC, referring to her daughter. We were going away, and I was bringing her to a cattery, and she managed to get out of the cat box and go without a trace.
But then she received a phone call from the veterinarian, who confirmed that the cat in question was, in fact, Topsey. In any case, owing to her injuries, the cat will need to be under the care of a veterinarian for a few more days. Let’s hope that Topsey will be able to completely heal and return home since a happy conclusion is much needed in this narrative.
