Via CNN - For China the stowaway cat, nine lives were enough
China the cat had chewed through one of the boxes before it left Shanghai, China, on April 3 and spent at least 35 days on a ship inside the container filled with motorcycle gear.

"Usually, we say that animals can only survive a few weeks without food and only a few days without water," said Michelle Misavage, a veterinarian in Raleigh, North Carolina. "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."
That is truly amazing. And I suppose that means that I can stop feeling guilty if I ignore my cats when they meow at me wanting to be fed twenty times a day.
