This Adorable Cat Snuck Onto A Truck And Rode From Toronto To Calgary

Gulliver travels.

Posted on

This is Gulliver, a cat with a severe case of wanderlust. The three-year-old stray was discovered in Calgary after hitching a ride all the way from Toronto.

He stowed away on a Bison Transport truck around Christmas and was only found by staff in Calgary several days and more than 3,000 kilometres later.

Staff gave him over to the MEOW Foundation, a charity that takes in stray and abandoned cats in Calgary.

Tara Borna, a spokesperson for the charity, said Gulliver was definitely a stray and not somebody's lost pet "as he didn't have a microchip or any identifiers."

"He was also filthy and ate like he hadn't eaten in months," Borna told BuzzFeed Canada.

Gulliver was skittish at first, but he soon came around when offered food and water. "He is the sweetest little boy. He loves his pets and we absolutely adore him," Borna said.

MEOW Foundation

It was one of the MEOW Foundation people who came up with Gulliver's name.

Best news of all: Gulliver already has a home lined up. "One of his Bison rescuers is looking forward to taking his travelling buddy home for good," Borna said.
