Kitten survived in shipping crate from Singapore to US

CLEVELAND, Saturday, AP - A scrawny, black and white female kitten 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 was checked by a veterinarian and 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.
