A dog’s keen nose led a resident of Cornwall to a mineshaft, where 100 feet down, her cat Mowgli was lost and alone for 6 days.
Mowgli’s owner Michele Rose told the BBC she had “almost given up hope” of finding her missing pet, but “superstar” Daisy was persistent in getting Rose to follow her.
Rose, who adopted Mowgli last December along with another kitten named Baloo, gradually introduced the kittens to Daisy. Daisy became a matriarchal figure and was very protective. It must have been difficult for the dog when Mowgli disappeared.
The BBC report doesn’t say what attempts were made to find the missing cat, or what she and her dog were doing near the old Prince of Wales mine works in Cornwall, but it was there after 6 days that Daisy started going “berserk.”
Leading Rose to an old opening in the mines, she realized what Daisy was showing her, and she immediately called Cornwall Fire and Rescue service, but it was too dark that day to do anything.
The next morning, RSPCA animal rescue officer Stephen Findlow came out to the mines and spotted Mowgli who was 100 feet down and remarkably uninjured.

Pulling Mowgli to safety, the kitten was greeted by its compatriots and a relieved owner.
“Without Daisy doing that Mowgli could still be down there, that’s for sure,” Ms. Rose said. “She was persistent in making me follow her, it was amazing.”
