A Michigan Welcome Center doubled as an animal rescue center, as employees sought and saved a cat that escaped from its cross-country bound family.

Milkie, a 14-year-old tabby, was traveling in a moving truck with Graham Skelly and his 10-year-old son, Simon, from Seattle to Arlington, Virginia. The father says they stopped Aug. 21 at the travelers’ center in New Buffalo, near the Indiana line.

Skelly says the leashed cat became scared by a dog and ran into woods. The Skellys searched for two hours before leaving empty-handed.

Center employee Alyson Payne says workers finally safely trapped Milkie on Friday.
