Little Cat Bo Is Home Again



A LITTLE girl's kitten went missing on the same day as her grandfather's funeral. It was a really sad time for five-year-old Heather Wilson because it was her grandfather who had given her the kitten, called Bo, for her birthday.


She had been devoted to Bo, even making a book about him which she took to school to read out in class. He came in every morning to wake her up before school.


Heather's family searched everywhere for the cat and Heather made posters and they put them up all over their home town, Rosyth in Scotland. Local children all joined in the hunt, forming a search party to look for Bo, but to no avail.


Then, amazingly, a fortnight later the Scottish cats' society, based three miles away in Dunfermline, found a little cat sitting on their doorstep in the morning. They scanned the cat for a microchip and found one which led them straight back to the Wilson family.


No one is sure whether Bo had been dumped at the centre or whether he made his own way there, across several very busy roads.


Heather is thrilled to have her pet home again.
