    Workers were shocked to find a cat in a crate from China

    Kitten found in crate from China

    Updated: Thu Jul. 08 2010 18:51:02

    A crew at Icon Stone and Tiling in Calgary got a huge surprise while unloading a crate from China on Thursday.

    Inside they found a kitten.

    She was scared and emaciated, but she was okay.

    Staff put out some food and water to try to coax the cat out of her hiding spot.

    In the end crews had to remove 24 slabs of granite to get to the approximately six-month-old kitten.

    Staff then called the Humane Society for help.

    They believe the cat had been in the crate about one month and appeared very skinny.

    Fortunately, the Humane Society's Maria Spina was able to catch the kitty and take her to safety.

    There are probably many Strays in China as there are all over the World.

    Gary, someone at the plant already wants to adopt her when she is healthier! Looks like she will be ok.

    The staff said it was "emotional" - words from the forklift guy - how sweet that they all cared so much.

    They have named her Mandarin.

    I am guessing she was a stray who crawled into a crate on the loading dock in China, and no one knew she was in there, poor little thing!

    The little one certainly had an angel looking over her.

    Glad she is OK and has a family waiting for her.

    The world is NOT as bad as we are told it is after all.

    Moosmom, I don't think anyone did that to her on purpose, I think she wandered into one of the crates on the dock in China, and no one knew. I'm sure the picture they are showing is of her in a crate at the Humane Society.

    After all she did what so many people did: leaving her country in immense hardship for a better future. A true Canadian
    I am so happy she's ok

    Uh oh.. an illegal immigrant!

    What a wonderful happy ending to what could easily have been a horror story.

    Death thought about it.

    More on Mandarin

    Stowaway cat in Calgary Humane Society's care
    Last Updated: Friday, July 9, 2010 | 3:21 PM MT
    CBC News
    

    A stowaway kitten found in a steel shipping container that arrived in Calgary from China is now in the care of the Calgary Humane Society.

    The six-month-old calico cat, which has been named Mandarin by the society, was found Thursday scared and dehydrated among an order of stone slabs by ICON Stone and Tile after spending more than six weeks in a crate.

    The humane society believe she lived off mice and drank condensation dripping from a roof.

    The kitten is undergoing a full medical checkup and will be quarantined for the next two weeks.

    ETA: this pic seems a little clearer...what a pretty Tortie girl!
