Cat Survives Trip From Canada To NC In Refrigerated Truck

By Chris Abbotts

A lucky feline is warming up at an animal shelter in Edneyville after surviving a trip from Canada in the back of a refrigerated truck.

The Times-News of Hendersonville reports that the cat was discovered earlier this month when workers were unloading cargo from the truck at a warehouse in Mills River.

But the chilly trip didn't end there. The cat escaped into the warehouse, where the temperature is kept at 38 degrees, before employees caught him after about a week.

The cat is now at the Blue Ridge Humane Society Animal Adoption and Rescue Center, where he's being quarantined. Workers plan to have him neutered and vaccinated and then put up for adoption.

Since his adventure ended, he's been given the name Joe Cool.
