A marauding cat was spotted hopping on and off different buses – to get to the SEASIDE.
Mischievous moggy PC started her grand day out by leaping from the roof of a pub where she lives to board the number 155 Stagecoach bus.
But the 12 mile journey from South Molton to Barnstaple in Devon was just the start of her epic journey in search of the beach.
Somehow the sun-seeking feline managed to switch routes and jump on board a connecting bus service.
And four hours later, the 15-year-old pet was spotted another 25 miles away on the North Devon coastline near Ilfracombe.
Known as PC as she is a pub cat, the pet has now reunited with her owners at The Coaching Inn who were stunned by her remarkable adventure.
Tash Halls from The Coaching Inn in South Molton, Devon, said she had spent hours looking for PC, initially hoping she had got off nearby.
She then made a desperate plea on Facebook for help. This was later spotted by Kerry Angell who shared photos of PC, who appeared to be thoroughly enjoying her ride on the buses.
Kerry said: “My friend Amy is a bus driver and phoned me to say she’d found a cat on her bus.
“We had no idea when or where she had boarded, but she seemed perfectly happy to sit in the footwell.
“We looked after her for the night, took her to the vet and phoned the RSPCA.
“I’m so pleased she has been reunited with her owners, she’s such a sweet little thing,”
PC was kept in at the vets for a check-up and to sort out a tooth that had come loose, before being returned home a few days later.
Tash said she was thrilled to have her back home.
She added: “Thank you to everyone who helped get PC back, but especially Kerry.
“We really appreciate everyone’s help, thoughts and wishes. She is a huge part of The Coaching Inn family and we are so very happy to have her home.”
A former stray, PC now lives a pampered life at the pub, and normally sleeps with Tash every night.
She added: “I suffer from PTSD after serving in the forces, so having her back is unbelievable. I’ve had a bad few years and she is my comforter. It really is the perfect ending having her home.”
The pub has now set up donations to North Devon Animal Ambulance, to help cover the cost of her care and vets bills while she was away.
Locals took to Facebook to express their relief, when the news broke that PC had been found safe and was coming home.
Tina Trevena-Lock said, “Maybe she fancied an ice cream! Brilliant news she’s home.”
Crystal Copeland added: “I’m so pleased you found her, she’s certainly had an adventure.”
