Fortunately this ginger moggy is well on his way to full health after he was hit by a car last week.
But it is not Mickey's road to recovery that has left nurses at the Sumerhill Surgery in Newport scratching their heads, but a very different kind of journey.
Because this little feline has somehow made a staggering 150-mile cross country trip - taking him from South Harrow to South Wales.
Believed to be between just one and two years old, Mickey was hit by a car in Newport last Thursday and now staff are desperate to find his owners.
Taken in by caring staff at the local vets Mickey was soon discovered with an electronic chip giving his address as Eastcote Avenue in South Harrow.
Deputy head nurse at the surgery, Mandy James, says it is unusual to take in pets so far from home but said that jumping on board a car and making the long distance trip is not unheard of.
She said: "At the moment we are having difficulty finding his owner and it may well be that they have moved to Newport and not changed his chip.
"However, if he had somehow got himself in a car and been transported all the way here it wouldn't be a first.
"We just want to reunite him with his family who we are sure will be missing him - wherever they may be."
Since his accident last week the cat has undergone several x-rays and is using a feeding tube because of his facial injuries.
It is hoped that he will make a full recovery in the next few weeks but he is currently in a good condition despite his injuries.
Ms James added that although they have two telephone numbers listed for the Harrow address, no one has answered their calls and they are now desperately hoping the public can help find them.
Anyone who can help trace the owner or recognises Mickey can contact Summerhill Veterinary Surgery on 01633 255394.
