CLEVELAND - A scrawny, black and white female kitten has apparently
survived a trip across the Pacific Ocean and North America inside a
shipping crate. Cleveland Animal Protective League Executive Director
Sharon Harvey says a Cleveland company that received the crate of
spooled steel coil Friday found the kitten inside one the spools.

Harvey says the mother cat and other kittens found in the crate were
dead. The crate came to Samsel Supply Co. from Singapore. It was
sealed Feb. 4 and shipped three days later.

The approximately 12-week-old kitten has been checked by a
veterinarian and has responded well to being fed.

It will be kept in quarantine for about three weeks to make sure it
doesn't pass any infectious disease to other animals.
