Meet Trudie, The ‘Miracle’ Cat Who Survived Being Run Over By A Bus And Found A New Forever Home

They say that cats have seven lives and 4-year-old Trudie is a living proof of that. The cat was run over by a bus in Luton, Bedfordshire, and suffered major injuries, but miraculously stayed alive. Some people saw the accident and tried to help the cat, but their attempts were unsuccessful and she ran off.

Trudie was missing for 16 days as the staff of Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals were putting up posters and posting on social media to find her. Luckily, the cat was finally spotted and rushed for life-saving treatments.

After six months of recovery, Trudie is finally doing fine and has even found a new home. Her new owners Dennis and Shirley heard about the furry local celebrity and decided to welcome Trudie into their family. Pictures below document not only Trudie’s recovery, but also the fact that miracles do actually happen!

What a princess, I hope she is now being spoiled like she deserves. Buses are one of the reasons my cat is indoor unless on her leash.

First line "They say cats have seven lives" --- nine lives, surely!?!

The saying is varies in some countries: Interestingly, the myth that cats have multiple lives exists around the world. However, it’s not always nine lives – the number varies from culture to culture. In certain regions of Spain it is believed that cats have seven lives, for example. Meanwhile, some Turkish and Arabic legends say cats have six lives. (https://www.petplan.co.uk/)
