Cat baffles owner A cat is baffling his owner by waiting to be collected by car every morning at exactly the same time and place. Sgt Podge, a Norwegian Forest Cat, goes out every night from his owner's home in Bournemouth, reports the BBC. The next morning, the 12-year-old cat can always be found waiting on a pavement one and a half miles away. His owner, Liz Bullard, said the routine began earlier this year, when Sgt Podge disappeared one day. Ms Bullard rang the RSPCA and began telephoning her neighbours to see if anyone had seen him. An elderly woman called back to say she had found a cat matching Sgt Podge's description on the pavement outside her house. Ms Bullard collected him but within days he vanished again - and turned up in exactly the same place. A routine has now become established. Each morning, she takes her son to school before collecting Sgt Podge on the way back, between 8am and 8.15am. Ms Bullard also makes the trip at weekends and during school holidays - when her son is having a lie in. She does not know why, after 12 years, Sgt Podge has begun the routine but adds: "As long as you know where they are you don't mind as a cat owner."
