A cat that went missing in Walsoken was found inside Wisbech Castle after trekking 50 minutes from home over two months.

The black and white feline was found wandering in the grounds of the landmark building and hiding in the bushes.

Volunteers used the power of social media to track down the owners of the cat last week – discovering he had somehow made his way from Walsoken to Wisbech.

The delighted family couldn’t wait to take the moggy home and arrived at the castle with a cat carrier basket in tow.

In a post on the Wisbech Castle Facebook page, it read: “The fella looked a little under the weather and sorry for itself, ‘nesting’ under the bushes and extremely nervous and skittish.

“We could not get close enough to check for injury, but did begin leaving out food, which he happily lapped up.

“While Dave Topgood kept the cat fed, Brenda Barber suggested Facebook as an option, as she seemed to remember somebody had lost a cat like it some time ago.”

The missing cat was advertised by worried owners back in early December, and since then had somehow made its way from Walsoken to inside the walls of Wisbech Castle.

“It just goes to show - even after weeks and weeks sometimes things just all work out in the end,” the post added.
