From Waikoloa Village, Hawaii to Southern California, the 18 day voyage for 3-year-old calico cat, Spice, began when her owner was packing a shipping container in Hawaii headed to California.

Spice spent 18 days in the pitch-black container without food or water.   

Although the cat kidneys had shrunk and her bowels were backed up, she managed to get some food and water down at the vet in California, shortly after they found her while unpacking the shipping container at their final destination.  

Fearing the worst, owner Pamela Escamilla lucked out and thankfully this story had a happy ending.
