Cat stows away on 7,300 mile trip

Posted: Updated:
LOS ANGELES (WNEM) -

A four-year-old cat is recovering after an unintentional trip from the Philippines.

Officials at the Los Angeles County animal shelter says the cat has been with them for two weeks since she was discovered in a shipping container just outside the city.

The 7,300 mile trip without food and water had left her frail and near death. The feline, named Pinay, received two weeks of treatment and is now in fair condition.

Officials say the cat is nearly fully recovered and they are now looking for an adoptive family to take her home.

A year ago, a kitten made a similar trip, surviving a trip from China to the United States.
