Stowaway kitten that survived voyage from China gets new home
L.A. County animal control officials say the cat, which has been named Ni Hao, or "hello" in Chinese, has been adopted by a family in Redondo Beach.
The family was chosen from among more than 80 serious candidates who applied to adopt the stowaway.
The emaciated kitten was found inside a freight container on July 11 at the Port of Los Angeles that had arrived from Shanghai.
He was treated and under quarantine at the Carson Animal Care Center for two months.
When he was found, the now 5-month-old kitten couldn't walk, see or make any sounds.
The only lingering sign of trauma is a limp, which animal control official Aaron Reyes describes as "his own strut."ALSO:
