'Miracle Cat' Survives For 64 Days Inside Moving Box Without Food And Water

A family in Fairbanks, Alaska was recently reunited with their cat who had been missing for two months. The family lost Moosie, their two-year-old tabby cat, when they moved to Alaska from El Paso, Texas. The cat was found inside of a mattress after the family moved into their new home in Alaska. The New York Post reported that the cat was trapped in the family's futon for approximately 64 days.

Moosie's owner Kymberly Chelf told Detroit Free Press:

"We just assumed he had run away, which was very unlike Moosie. He's just a very loyal, loving cat."


It turns out that the cat was actually already en route to Alaska, in a moving truck that was over 3,000 miles away from the couple's new home in Fairbanks.

The Chelf family was finally reunited with their furry feline when their belongings arrived at their new home in Alaska last week.

Kymberly and her husband rushed Moosie to a veterinary hospital, where the cat received rehydration treatment as well as surgery and a blood transfusion.

"It's unbelievable, but we are so glad to have him alive, and we can't wait for him to come back home," Kymberly Chelf said. "It's a long road to recovery for him, but we're looking forward to having him back and getting him nice and fat again."
