A Dundee boy with cerebral palsy is “delighted” to have been reunited with his pet cat after the animal’s mysterious disappearance.
Storm belongs to nine-year-old Jonathan Williams, from Linlathen, and his sister Leah, 8, but somehow ended up at Ninewells Hospital on the other side of the city where she was spotted trying to sneak into a side entrance by staff.
Rumours circulated on social media that two women were seen throwing the lost cat out of a car outside the A&E department.
Jonathan’s mum Shelley Forrester said she had no idea who the women could be or why they’d take the cat, but was adamant the beloved pet would not have been able to get so far away by herself.
She said: “Storm is an outdoor cat, but Ninewells is too far away to have walked by herself.
“Fortunately, she’s not injured and we were reunited through the Missing Pets Dundee and Angus group, but since coming back she’s not been the same.
“She no longer wants to go far from the house and is more nervous around people.
A Ninewells Hospital worker, who did not wish to be named, said: “We spotted her trying to get into the hospital side entrance when we finished shift. A colleague said she saw someone throwing the cat out of a car beside A&E, but I didn’t see that.”
