Train-hopping cat reunited with owner

Dublin, Ireland -- Transportation officials in Dublin, Ireland, said they found the owner of a cat that hitched a 10-mile ride on a local train.

Officials with Iarnoid Eireann, Ireland's national railway system operator, said the cat was found at Dublin's Pearse Street train station and a review of security footage determined the feline had boarded a Dublin Area Rapid Transit train in Malahide, RTE News, Dublin, reported Tuesday.

The rail company issued an appeal on its Twitter feed for the cat's owner to come forward and the animal was soon reunited with owner Eric Bieci.

Bieci thanked railway workers for helping reunite him with his pet.
