Migrant cat survives voyage, heads to quarantine in Italy

Rome (AFP) – Even cats must quarantine. A six-month-old cat named ‘Pupi’ who survived a trip with his Tunisian owner across the Mediterranean before landing at Lampedusa is in good health and will be cared for, the island’s mayor said on Wednesday.

Mayor Toto Martello wrote on Facebook the orange male tabby with a white chest and paws had spent a few days at a migrant reception centre with his owner after their arrival by boat in Italy on July 1.
