A three-month-old kitten is recovering in California after surviving a journey across the Pacific in a shipping container from China, without food or water.
The orange-and-white cat has been named Ni Hao, or Hello in Mandarin, after being found when the container was opened last week, following the two-week, 10,450km trip from Shanghai.
Animal control authorities in Los Angeles are now seeking a local cat-lover to adopt him.
