Curiosity might be said to have killed the cat, but the same cannot be said for the Barths’ family’s cat.
Memeow travelled in a box from Virginia to Hawaii and was found alive and kicking by her owners who had already said farewell to their beloved pet. The family was on a trip and their cat got lost right before it was time to leave.
The owners had to stay around for one more day and look for the animal, but it never returned, so despite all the sadness, everyone accepted the loss of their pet. They had a big surprise when they arrived home though! Someone heard a faint meow in one of the boxes, and there was the grey cat, weighting half of what it had weighed before, and very weakened, but alive.
The veterinarians said that cases of cats surviving without food an water for a month were not known to them before.
No need to test that now that you read about it, though. Everyone knows how much cats are attracted to boxes and narrow spaces, so next time when you pack for moving out, just keep an eye on your cat.
