Cat from the Canary Islands found in Scotland
The cat, which has since been named Juanita, was found in a garage in Aberdeenshire
A seemingly intrepid cat from the Canary Islands was found in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, on Thursday, begging the question how many lives did the cat use to miraculously get across the ocean?
The cat was found by a family in Muchalls, who contacted Cats Protection before taking it to the vet, according to the BBC.
Using the cat’s identity chip, the vet traced it to the Spanish island of Fuerteventura, after it could not be found on the UK database.
It has since been named Juanita, with attempts to find its owner using registration details stored in the chip so far unsuccessful.
Rosy Long, who found the cat, told the BBC: "I opened the garage and we found this small cat.
"We think she had just got shut in, she must have been desperate to get out of the cold,"
She added: "The vet said 'bingo' when it came back she was from the Canary Islands."
Juanita will be found a new home if the owners cannot be traced.
