Cat Stows Away on Ship, Makes 6,400-Mile Journey to L.A.
Pinay the cat is just fine, say L.A. County Department of Animal Care and Control officials. The feline was discovered in a container that had come all the way from Manila:
The department said this week that the 4-year-old "domestic short-haired cat" was found in the container at its final destination, a business in the City of Industry, on July 16.
The feline needs some care before it's released to a good family, officials say. But that will eventually happen:
Pinay is doing well at the County of Los Angeles -- Baldwin Park Animal Care Center and will be in the Department's care until she is ready for adoption; however, potential adopters or foster families should have considerable experience dealing with skittish cats. Pinay has been through a lot and needs a calm, loving family to help her transition.
