“A six year old orange tabby has become an internet sensation and made an auto glass company famous in the process. The cat spent three weeks without food or water, after having traveled from Shenzhen, China to the port in Vancouver until she was found inside of a shipping container by some of the team at Independent Glass Distributers, in Prince George, British Columbia.
“For 20 sum years of doing this, I’ve never seen anything like this before. Initially I wanted to protect my guys because you never know what an animal can carry. We found the tiny thing at the back of the truck after about an hour of unloading, originally we thought it was a rat or something because we had seen so many pieces of cardboard on the ground and heard sounds leading us to the last container,” said Darcy Legeard, Independent Glass Distributers, in Prince George, British Columbia manager.
The British Columbia SPCA North Cariboo District Branch took donations for medical treatment for the traveling feline. According to B.C.’s SPCA, the animal, also known as Stowaway, was believed to have survived by licking condensation that formed on the shipping container’s walls and consuming cardboard.”
