And yet this story could've easily been a tragic one!
Ashley Barth and her family were in the middle of a move from Virginia to Hawaii when they noticed their cat Mee Mowe hadn't shown up around their house in a while.
They waited for the cat for two days before continuing on with their move which had them waiting for their boxes from Virginia in Hawaii for longer than a whole month.

But when they received the last of the boxes and heard a meow — they were shocked to find their family cat, looking like it was close to death, in one of the boxes.
It turns out that the someone from the moving company that the Barth family used had packed the cat in a box, and somehow the feline survived a month long trip, or 36 days to be exact, trapped in that box!
And the family have no clue how or why that happened!
Ashley Barth said:
"She was found taped inside of a box in the mattress box, so she was actually in a box taped shut. I know somebody did it from the moving company, that's not a question. The question is was it intentional or an accident?"
Mee Mowe's reunion with her family didn't last long though.
The kitty has been in quarantine for three months since being found as she hadn't had all of her vaccine shots before leaving Virginia, and also needed to recover from that life threatening event!
But Mee Mowe's almost completely healthy and her family can't wait to have her home! Even though the medical costs for their cat have been pretty expensive having spent $4,000 so far.
But Ashley Barth thinks it was all worth it! Especially when they see how the cat responds to when they visit. She said:
"She's doing much, much better and is very, very happy when we come and see her."
We're so glad to hear that!
Hopefully Mee Mowe will continue to recover healthily and will be up on her paws in Hawaii paradise soon!!!
