MANCHESTER, UK – A cat has miraculously survived having been trapped in a car at Manchester Airport for a total of 11 days.
Shocked holidaymakers returned to find Willow the cat inside their car which was parked at Terminal 1 without any food or water.
Police said the cat ‘didn’t look well at all’ and was immediately taken by airport staff to Woodcroft Vets in Cheadle for treatment.
Willow had been reported missing several days earlier by her owners in Chorley after she apparently snuck into the car as the jet-setters, also from Chorley, were packing.
A spokesperson from GMP Manchester Airport stated: “Other than dehydration she was remarkably in good health.
“She was fortunately electronically tagged and staff were able to speak to the owner in Chorley after she was traced.
“The owner had reported her cat lost and was understandably very emotional and thankful she had been found.
“It appears she sneaked into the car when the holiday makers also from Chorley were loading their car.
“Willow is doing very well and was eating and drinking at the surgery later.”
