A cat that snuck onto a transport truck in Toronto and travelled along to Calgary before being discovered is now in the care of a local rescue group.

The three-year-old male stray — who has been named Gulliver — somehow managed to get inside a Bison Transport truck in Toronto a few weeks after Christmas.
He wasn't discovered until the truck arrived in Calgary three days later.
In a release, the MEOW Foundation says the employees at the Calgary Bison terminal cared for the cat for a few weeks before contacting the rescue group.
MEOW says Gulliver will be available for adoption after being neutered, vaccinated and microchipped — although they say one of the Calgary Bison employees who found and cared for the cat has already put in a bid to adopt him.
