A missing cat has been discovered in a Pepsi truck in Riverside some 2,300 miles away from her home of Savannah, Georgia.
The cat, known only as "Kitty Bitty," first went missing way back on July 4 of this year:
The sassy "Kitty Bitty"
Teresa Cameron, Kitty Bitty's owner, thought that the cat might have gotten scared off due to Independence Day celebrations:
"We figured he got afraid of all the fireworks and the noise. We just were afraid he'd got out and was gone."
Fortunately for all parties involved, Kitty Bitty had a rabies tag, which helped authorities find the 5 year-old cat's owner back South.
Animal Services retrieved the dehydrated fuzzball and provided veterinary observation and care.
The department is making arrangements to have Kitty Bitty flown home in time for Christmas.
In the meantime, she is reportedly "resting comfortably" at the Western Riverside County/City Animal Shelter in Jurupa Valley.
