Cupcake the Cat Survives 8 Days Sealed in a Box

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A cat has survived eight days sealed in a box of DVDs that her owner posted.

Cupcake the cat fell asleep inside the box, before it was posted from Cornwall to West Sussex, more than two hundred and fifty miles away.

But as Cupcake is microchipped, vets managed to trace her owner and they`ve been reunited."


Cat owners know that there`s no need to buy toys for their furry pets, they will eschew the most expensive toys in favor of a simple box.

Whenever I purchase an item that`s packaged in a box, as soon as I open the box and remove the product, my cats will jump inside the box. So it`s not surprising that a woman accidentally sealed her sleeping feline in a box of DVDs that she took to the post office.

Fortunately, Cupcake the Cat was microchipped and she was returned to her owner. Cupcake is expected to make a full recovery, and I`d be surprised if her ordeal lessens her enthusiasm for sleeping in boxes.
