A Merrigum resident unwittingly took his two kittens all the way to Geelong this morning.ROBERT NICOL January 30, 2013 1:36pm
A Merrigum resident had an unusual encounter this morning, which he has relayed to the Tatura Guardian.
He had a business appointment in Geelong and left Merrigum at 5 am, arriving at his destination around 9.15 am.
After getting out of his vehicle, a large four-wheel drive, and having a stretch after the long trip, a kitten appeared at his feet. He picked it up and was surprised to see how friendly it was.
Looking similar to one of two kittens he has at home, he phoned his wife to check if the kitten was at home.
Before getting a response, a second kitten appeared. He again phoned his wife, telling her not to bother looking.
Both kittens had hitched a ride in the wheel well of the vehicle and travelled all the way from Merrigum to Geelong without falling out onto the road.
The perplexed driver then had to race around to find a carton to put the kittens in whilst attending his meeting, before the long trip home.
No doubt the kittens had a much more pleasant trip back to Merrigum than the one they had to Geelong.
