TAMPA, Fla. - A business owner opening a shipment of merchandise from China got an additional item he didn't expect a severely undernourished cat.

The traveling feline apparently began her journey at a factory in China where workers loaded the parrot cages into a 40-foot metal container in early March, Goldberg said. The container arrived by boat in Los Angeles on April 1 and then traveled by rail to Tampa.
China was taken to Hillsborough County Animal Services, where she was given intravenous fluids and food. She was later transferred to a private clinic, Florida Veterinary Specialists, for further tests. Results were pending Friday.

Goldberg's brother-in-law e-mailed the factory in China where the cages originated, Dayang Co.
"You gave us a very big surprise today," a company staffer wrote in response. "We are very happy to know our cat still alive. Would you please tell us more information about our cat? Is it a yellow or gray one? Because we have two cats, but they disappeared one month ago. ... Please raise it, or you can give it to the animal asylum."

1. Considering
humans sometimes survive the trip, I'm not too surprised cats did.

Those that do smuggle humans are scum and should be locked up for life.
