Special delivery: Cat sent by mail survives 8 days in box

LONDON (AP) — A tough Siamese cat named Cupcake has survived eight days cooped up in a box after accidentally being sent through the mail by her British owners.

Cupcake was in a box with an order of DVDs that was sent from Cornwall in southwestern England to West Sussex in south-central England.

The recipient found a badly dehydrated Cupcake in the box along with the DVDs and contacted the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals for help. The RSPCA traced the owners through the cat's microchip.

"We looked everywhere for her," owner Julie Baggott said Sunday, adding that she felt terrible about Cupcake's ordeal.

Vets said Cupcake needed treatment but should recover fully.
