A cat that went missing for five months has been reunited with her owner after being found in a charity’s furniture warehouse.
Feisty four-year-old feline Kiri went AWOL from her home in Chinnor back in August but was discovered by volunteers in amongst the donations at the Sue Ryder Nettlebed Hospice Sales warehouse.
The adventurous moggy had ended up at the charity in Henley – after its thought she hitched a ride in a removal van – and was being fed by volunteer Diana Elms.
Diana took the cat to Henley Veterinary Centre this week after being able to catch her for the first time.
They found she had been microchipped, so were able to call her delighted owner Aurelia Verdin.
Aurelia, 28, had searched everywhere for her beloved long-haired black puss when she first went missing, even putting up posters and walking the streets, but to no avail.
She said: “I was in shock. It didn’t really sink in until I actually got down to the vets and saw her!”
