Lonely Truck Driver Adopts Neglected Stray Cat And He’s Now His Constant Companion On The Road

Truck driver Paul Robertson loves what he does. However, even though he enjoys driving, he may feel lonely driving, mile after mile, alone on the road. And so, since Robertson is an animal lover, he decided to adopt a cat named Howie.

For years, Howie sat by Robertson’s side, keeping him company on his long drives. When Howie died in 2017, Robertson was devastated.

He decided he wanted to give another neglected cat a good home, so he headed to an animal shelter to find his new companion.

Shelter staff introduced Robertson to a ginger cat named Percy. Robertson quickly knew that Percy was the right cat for him.
Percy had not had an easy life. He had lived on the streets, and he had clearly been in a few fights. He had an injury above his right eye and was missing one of his canines.

But even though Percy had had a difficult past, he was still as kind as possible. He immediately bonded with Robertson and Robertson decided to officially adopt him.
Shortly after Robertson adopted Percy, they set off on their first long-haul trip together. Percy loved riding in the truck!

During their first two weeks together, Robertson mostly drove through the Midwest. Percy got to see the Badlands, the Rockies, and tons of bison.

Percy loved every minute of the trip!

“He is very affectionate and loves to crawl on my lap, on my chest, then rub my cheeks,” Robertson wrote on Facebook. “He loves to play. He purrs a lot. And of course, he’s a cat: he loves to eat and he loves to nap.
