Trucker Gets Unexpected Ride-Along Guest For 2,000-Mile Trip
Marianna, Florida – A beautiful snowshoe cat named Sebastian may have always wanted to go for a ride in a semi, so he apparently jumped at the chance, but now finds himself a long way from home.
According to a Facebook post on Saturday night from Partners For Pets in Marianna, Florida, Sebastian hitched a ride on a big rig unbeknownst to his owner or the trucker.
The trucker indicated Sebastian must have gotten on in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The kitty survived a more than 2,000-mile trip, though it is unclear when the truck driver discovered his unexpected ride-along guest.
Partners For Pets wrote that the trucker “took care of him for a short while, but could not keep him.”
Now the “sweet, friendly” fella finds himself a long way from home without his family.
The shelter is asking anyone who might know Sebastian’s family to help them reunite by reaching out to them.
Some Facebook commenters have already responded saying they are pretty sure they recognize Sebastian as their “neighborhood cat.”
We certainly hope Sebastian finds his way back home or at least finds a new family soon.
In either case, there is no doubt he will never forget his long journey on a big rig.
