Hitchhiker cat that went missing more than two years ago is finally reunited with its owner

A cat that went missing two-and-a-half years ago has been reunited with her owner – after being found 60 miles away.

Ruby is believed to have stowed away on a lorry and travelled up the M1 motorway from her home in Bedfordshire.

The pet was found on an industrial estate in Coventry after a security guard who had been feeding her contacted Cats Protection.

They checked the five-year-old's microchip and set about tracing her owner, Jordan Harvey – and the pair are now back together.

Mr Harvey said: 'They brought my little girl back to me and I'm forever grateful to them.'

He thinks Ruby hitched a ride on a lorry in April 2018 as his home in Brogborough is close to a truck stop on the M1.

Cats Protection staff said Ruby was 'all over' Mr Jordan when she set eyes on him again.
