They say that cats have seven lives and 4-year-old Trudie is a living proof of that. The cat was run over by a bus in Luton, Bedfordshire, and suffered major injuries, but miraculously stayed alive. Some people saw the accident and tried to help the cat, but their attempts were unsuccessful and she ran off.
Trudie was missing for 16 days as the staff of Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals were putting up posters and posting on social media to find her. Luckily, the cat was finally spotted and rushed for life-saving treatments.
After six months of recovery, Trudie is finally doing fine and has even found a new home. Her new owners Dennis and Shirley heard about the furry local celebrity and decided to welcome Trudie into their family. Pictures below document not only Trudie’s recovery, but also the fact that miracles do actually happen!
