Veterinarians don’t know how 3 rescue cats survived 22 days in a van without anything to sustain them — 2 Comments

  1. I have read of cats who stowed away/got accidentally shut in, inside metal shipping containers, surviving long ocean voyages by licking condensation to survive.

    Small rodents proliferate on ships and some containers may have holes small enough for mice to get in. Insects could also be a form of food.

    Mice are known to gnaw their way into vehicles via softer rubber/plastic light and electrical fittings.

    22 days survival without fluid or food is astonishing. No wonder the vets are perplexed

    • Good idea. There could have been something inside the van to eat like insects. However, cats are amazingly durable and there are a lot of stories of cats surviving longer than 22 days in similar environments.
