Curiosity gets the cat: 'Stowaway' tabby's 500-mile voyage

A six-month-old tabby climbed into a container ship in Rosyth in Fife and travelled 500 miles to Holland. He was found inside a container marked ‘Nairn’ by dock workers at the port near Zaanstreek. The cat has since been taken to an animal shelter, where staff looking after him have named him ‘Grant’, after the whisky brand. The owner, who has not yet been found, will have to pay quarantine fees for the cat’s return from Holland, said a spokesman for the Scottish SPCA. (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals)
