Meet the Donegal cat run over FIVE
times in one day
MEET the tom cat who
refuses to be road-kill after being run over FIVE
times in the one day.
The ginger m – ale was negotiating terrain near a
busy Donegal roundabout when he was hit by a car.
A local volunteer with Animals in Need happened to
be driving by and "watched in horror" as the cat was
run over four more times as she pulled in to help
But the fizzy feline clearly didn’t want to be Dead
& Ginger or brown (ginger) bread either and
survived, cartoon-like, to purr another day.
Beautiful Donegal Town cat that refuses to be road kill.
The charity told amazed
followers how the “small tiger” incredibly survived
cat-astrophe, adding that the feisty feline ended up
with just a scratch after his ordeal.
"Thinking the cat must be dead after this, she
nevertheless went to check on him as he lay in the

the charity added.
The volunteers quipped that last Thursday's capers
were "straight out of a comedy road movie". They
also appealed for any owners of the "semi-feral"
feline to come forward to claim him.
