TIME is running out for the owner of a runaway Huddersfield cat to claim her back.
The female tabby hitched a lift on the back of a lorry going to Nottingham in December.
She was returned to Bradley by the lorry's driver and taken to Halifax RSPCA.
She has been staying with RSPCA fosterer Adele Eccles in Bradley since New Year's Eve.
But, despite appeals for the owner to come forward, no-one has claimed it.
Miss Eccles said: "We really only have to give seven days after an advert before we think about re-homing a cat.
"But we will give it until next weekend, because she could belong to someone who is on holiday. But if no-one has come forward by then, we will be thinking about re-homing her."
The lorry driver found the cat on December 30, when it leaped out while he was unloading in Nottingham.
The driver had previously seen the cat hanging around his Bradley depot.
For this reason, he decided the cat was from Bradley and brought it back.
The cat appears healthy and well cared for, with a nice personality. She has a distinguishing feature which only the owner would recognise.
Pet owners are advised to get their animals a microchip implant under their skin. Vets, the RSPCA and other pet rescue groups can scan the chip and identify the owner.
The operation is relatively cheap, is safe and painless.
Anyone who believes the cat may be theirs should phone 01484 544504.
