Adventurous Cat Goes Undercover as UPS Package

One adventurous kitty spent a day last month learning what it was like to be a package, People reports. A woman named Margaret was at work June 30 when she got a notification from her pet tracking app that her cat Penny was on the move—and moving fast. Margaret left work and used the app's GPS map to follow Penny, eventually figuring out she must be inside a UPS truck. She flagged down the driver, who guaranteed there was no cat in his truck, but was unable to find Penny inside. Margaret was at home trying to figure out her next step when the GPS map showed Penny heading quickly back home. The UPS driver arrived at Margaret's door with a special delivery: Penny, who had apparently gotten stuck in a box.
