Video: Kitten Survives 6,500 Mile Trip From China to California

Ni Hao, a 3-month-old kitten, survived a 6,500 mile, two-week trip from Shanghai, China to Compton, California

Ni Hao survived in a shipping container, without food or water, inside a freighter sailing across the Pacific. He was discovered when workers opened the container in Compton, California last week.

Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control official Marcia Mayeda said: “Ni Hao greeted the medical team with his first meows this morning and is attempting to stand.”

Officials are looking for someone to adopt the kitten, who must remain in quarantine for 60 days.

If his health continues to improve, Ni Hao could finish his quarantine period in the home of a foster or adoptive family.
