A BRIDLINGTON woman has been reunited with the cat she described as the ‘last link’ to her father after a Free Press appeal.
Joesphine Gowland, of Kingsgate, Bridlington, noticed Daisy the cat was missing when she didn’t return home after leaving her house on March 20.
Daisy had been rescued from the railway lines by Josephine’s late father Tommy Atkins near his home on Ashbourne Avenue 10 years ago. Josephine took Daisy in after Tommy sadly passed away on February 2.
Now, after a picture of Daisy was printed in last week’s Free Press, Josephine has been reunited with Daisy, who is now safe and sound at home.
“I would just like to thank everyone who helped look for Daisy, and of course the Free Press for printing her photo. Without that I don’t think she would ever have been recognised and I may not have found her,” said Josephine.
Daisy was found on Bessingby Gate, a little thinner and bedraggled, by Rachael Salter, 30, of the XL take away on Quay Road.
“She had been delivering food at the top of Bessingby Gate and recognised Daisy from the picture.
“We had looked all over the town and we were worried we would never see her, and we’re so grateful to Rachael for noticing her and letting us know.
“We’re absolutely ecstatic that she is home safe and sound. She won’t be going out again for quite a while!”
