LONDON (Reuters Life!) - The ashes of Frisky, the cat who starred in the opening credits of soap opera Coronation Street, have sold to a British buyer for 844 pounds ($1,279), the auctioneers told Reuters.

Dominic Winter auctioneers expected the cat's remains to fetch between 100 and 150 pounds.

Frisky died in 2000, aged 14, after appearing in the credits of the world's longest-running soap for 11 years.

As well as Frisky's ashes in a wooden casket, the lot included a cremation certificate and publicity shots with Coronation Street actors.
