A kitten whose Christmas wish came true when it was rescued from a roof in Beccles has now been reunited with its owner.

Minnie, a six-month old black and white kitten, went missing from her home in the town’s Fairfax Court on December 23.

She was spotted on a roof by people living in the nearby Kemps Lane who were able to get on to the roof and bring down the much-relieved kitten.

After failing to find her owners, she was taken in by Feline Care Cat Rescue and a Facebook message, shared more than 200 times, resulted in Minnie finally being reunited with owner Jenna Cable.

Ms Cable said: “I had let her out and when she did not come back we started looking for her.

“We have her mum too and they look identical.”

After a short stay with her rescue family, the lucky kitten was finally reunited with her mum and owners.

Ms Cable said: “She was absolutely fine and settled back in really quickly, although she hasn’t been outside yet.”

The kitten has now been micro chipped just in case she decides to go on another adventure.
