Mounties reunite Whiskers with owners following rollover

Saskatchewan Mounties were the cat's meow Thursday following a car crash north of Regina.

Cold cat ran from the scene after crash

Saskatchewan Mounties were the cat's meow Thursday following a car crash north of Regina.

The early morning rollover on Highway 6 left a man and a woman with minor injuries.

The crash apparently spooked their short-haired cat, Whiskers, which fled the scene in -30 C weather.

An RCMP officer found the pet nearby, walking along the highway.

The officer scooped Whiskers up, placed the cat in his warm patrol car and returned it to its owners.

An RCMP spokesman said it appears the cat was uninjured and is "feline fine."
