A lucky black cat used up one of his nine lives after he went missing for three weeks and four days and was found trapped inside a neighbour’s attic.
Bonnie had lost half his body weight and spent 24 hours on a drip at the vets after the neighbours heard a faint scratching sound and went to the attic to investigate.
Inside was Bonnie, whose owner had spent every day trawling the streets of March trying to find him.
“I knew he was still around, I just knew it,” said his relieved owner Brenda Eldridge.
“All that time he was just two doors away. I didn’t give up. I became known as that lady out with a bag of biscuits. I walked the streets going everywhere, rattling the food bag, putting up posters on lamp posts, I was determined to find him.”

He went missing on Wednesday March 4 and was found on March 30 in the attic of her neighbour’s bungalow.
