The Elderly Lady was a passenger traveling on Thomas' train with her cat. The lady gave her cat to her daughter, who wanted look after him while she went away for Christmas. But when Thomas stops at Dryaw, the cat jumps out of the basket and runs away. Luckily for her, the passengers search for the cat while the crew fills Thomas' water tanks with snow. But as Thomas' crew finishes filling his water tanks, they find the cat hidden in a heap of snow. Soon after, the cat is dry and warm and his owner places him safely back in the basket and the train leaves on its way.
