On the day the London Olympics start meet a feline sprinter who loves to run. Midge is one of the Outstanding Rescue Cat category finalists in Cat’s Protection National Cat Awards sponsored by Verdo Cat Litter.
She was the rescue cat no-one wanted but one-eyed puss Midge turned out to have true movie star appeal after being adopted by Martin Humphreys. The story began when Martin took his regular morning jog to the shop and noticed Midge running alongside him. Not only was she enjoying the sprint – she actually appeared to be racing her new owner! Amazed by her sporting prowess, Martin made an acclaimed low-budget film about Midge’s competitive nature, The Great Race, which was shown at the Cannes Film Festival. Martin says: “Midge became more famous than Johnny Depp or Brad Pitt!”
see the video, it’s pretty cool.
