Kitten Survives 16 Day Journey in Shipping Container

Update 04/06/2015 08:25 AM Originally posted 04/03/2015 03:05 PM

If you have to spend 16 days trapped in an overseas shipping container, this is how you should do it.

An 8-month-old kitten named Sinbad survived for that long in a container full of luxury linens that hailed from Egypt and made its final stop in Hereford, England.

The cat, named for Sinbad the sailor, hopped on the container on March 8 and was discovered by workers 16 days later when he was unloaded in Moreton-on-Lugg.

"I think he gave the [truck] driver and the staff at Mediterranean Linens quite a shock when they found him back in Hereford! They called the RSPCA and we obviously came out to rescue him," Pippa Boyd, an inspector for the RSPCA, said in a statement on their website.

This comes as a surprise to many locals, who know Louis as the beloved kitty resident of the Gothic-style church. The feline, who spends his evenings hunting mice in the cathedral's holy halls, even has his own book, Louis the Cathedral Cat, and merchandise at Wells.
