PHOENIX - A cat who took a three-week cross-country ride to Arizona in a storage container is headed home to Florida. Arizona Humane Society officials say the 2-year-old gray cat crawled into the locker in Pompano Beach, Fla., while a man loaded it for a move to Phoenix.
The container spent time in a Florida warehouse and on a semitrailer before being delivered to a Phoenix facility.
A worker heard a cat meowing inside the container Tuesday. The cat, named Meatloaf, was hungry and thirsty but unharmed. The man who was moving remembered a similar cat near his old apartment.
Meatloaf's owners had put up posters around their neighborhood. The apartment manager remembered them when Humane Society called.
Officials will give Meatloaf time to recover before flying him home.
