A CAT who escaped just before she was due to be reunited with her owner in Poland has been found.

Last week, the Herald reported on Kaja Szymanska’s desperate bid to find four-year-old Inka, who ran away on June 14 on the EuroTunnel site when a transportation firm stopped to feed her.

But the cat has since been found, with Ms Szymanska posting: “We are so happy. We are arranging a trip to Folkestone now to pick up Inka. We can’t wait to see her.”

Lin Toynbee, from Cats' Protection, said: "The cat was eventually found - after ten days - by a Eurotunnel employee and I am caring for her at home."

Previously, a tearful Kaja said: “I had lived in England for nine years but came home about six months ago. Inka stayed with family but I am settled now and had arranged for her to come home.

“Unfortunately, she escaped but I am still hopeful people will find her soon. She is a friendly cat and clings to people. She will ask for help in a cat’s way, I’m sure.”
