Talk about having nine lives! An Australian cat named Pippa is miraculously alive after having spent 49 days in a shipping container, according to Time.
Pippa apparently snuck into the container while her owner was filling it with items for a neighbor who had just moved to Brisbane, Australia. When he opened the box, it was covered with cat hair, feces, and urine - and Pippa. Since she was so malnourished, she was taken to an animal welfare league, where she has been cared for, and has since moved in with a foster family. Rebecca Schilling, Pippa's owner, is working on bringing home the 3-year-old tabby, but also doesn't want to traumatize her further with long travel so soon after her ordeal.
