Eric Congdon, owner of a motor-sports business, recently cracked open a crate from China and saw something move in the corner. A closer look revealed a cat -- in sorry shape, but alive.
The Associated Press asks:
How could China survive for so long on no food and water?
"Usually we say that animals can only survive a few weeks without food and only a few days without water," said Raleigh veterinarian Michelle Misavage. "The theory is that cats have such good kidneys their bodies adjust to the lack of water and somehow they received small amounts of moisture from condensation."
