    Mandarin, a calico cat discovered in a shipping container in July, is healthy again and has been adopted. (Calgary Humane Society/Facebook)

    More than four months and thousands of kilometres later, a stowaway kitten from China has found a new home in Calgary.

    Mandarin, as the calico cat has been christened, was discovered scared and dehydrated in a steel shipping container in July.

    Employees of ICON Stone and Tile rescued her after she had spent more than six weeks among their order of stone slabs.

    The Calgary Humane Society, which has been taking care of the kitten for the last three months, believed she survived by eating mice and drinking condensation dripping from a roof.

    Six-month-old Mandarin weighed less than a kilogram when she arrived at the Humane Society, but now weighs in at close to four kilograms actually a little bit on the plump side.

    The cat is going home with an employee of the tile company.

    Her care at the shelter was covered by more than $1,000 in donations.

    What a sweetie, and we are glad she'll have a new home! Many ships used to carry cats to control any rodent problems, but modern shipping vessels are no place for a wee kitten!

    What a beautiful young woman she has grown into!

    What a delightful story, and what a wonderful ending.

    Now if only the 500 other kitties at the Calgary H.S. could find homes too... ...

    Happy 3rd Birthday Mandarin!

    My story... July 8, 2010 there was a stowaway kitten in a container of granite which traveled all the way from China to Calgary. When we discovered her upon opening the container we notified SPCA and of course the media. While waiting to get this poor little malnourished kitten out to safety we named it Mandarin. She was immediately taken into quarantine at the time only weighing 900 grams. After a very long road of medical issues and finally able to be released with a clean bill of health, I finally was able to adopt this crazy little kitty we called Mandarin! To me today is my little China Girl's birthday... Happy 3rd birthday Mandarin... 祝你生日快樂普通話 Zh nǐ shēngr kuil pǔtōnghu. Hahaha ) Thank you everyone at the Calgary, AB. Humaine Society for everything they did to keep her healthy and alive.
