A stray cat was hit by a bus in Luton, Bedfordshire, and managed to hide from any rescuers for 16 days. She was eventually found at the end of March 2021, and was taken to a veterinarian.  She needed a lot of time to recover, but now, she is ready to find a forever home. 

The stray cat, now named Trudie, suffered severe head injuries and needed immediate medical attention. Veterinarians removed one of Trudie’s eyes, which was badly damaged. They also wired her jaw shut. Thus, Trudie had to eat through a straw and was taught how to eat solid foods again by RSPCA Southridge Animal Centre staff. Many staff members called Trudie a miracle for surviving the incident.

Amy Hearne said, “Trudie is a miracle, so we gave her a very special name. After St Gertrude, the patron saint of cats.”

Now that she’s healed, Trudie will hopefully go to a loving and caring family. Not much is known about where Trudie came from, but Hearne said that she will “bring joy to the right family.”
