Curious Cat Hitches Ride on UPS Truck, Delivered Back Home

Posted on

July is Pet Loss Prevention Month, and it is important because of stories just like Penny’s.

Margaret was at work last Thursday, when she got a notification on her phone from Whistle app. The pet GPS tracking application was letting Margaret know that her cat, Penny, was outside her designated safe zone. 

Looking at Penny’s location, her owner realized that the feline was moving faster than four paws could take her, so she figured that cat had to be stuck in a car. Margaret left work and started following Penny’s trail, she soon realized that she was tailing a UPS truck, and figured Penny, a curious box-lover like most kitties, must’ve climbed inside.

Margaret waved down the driver and informed them of her pussy cat predicament. The driver allowed Margaret to search the truck, even though they swore Penny wasn’t in the vehicle. After searching up, down and all around, Margaret came up with nothing, so she went back home and called Whistle for help. The Whistle advocate confirmed that Penny’s device appeared to be on the truck, and promised Margaret he would keep an eye on the cat’s position.

Margaret was about to set out to track down the driver once more, when she realized Penny’s signal was heading in the direction of home. Soon after, the UPS truck appeared with Penny inside. The driver explained she found the cat stuck in a box, where she was unable to claw out. Both of the women were happy to see Penny back at home and off the delivery route. 

Margaret, who got the Whistle to keep track of her adventurous, furry family member, is happy to see the app at work.
