Following yesterday’s human cargo story, in which a homesick Welshman posted himself in a crate from Australia accidentally to the US, we have a slightly more successful immigration attempt. Sinbad the cat climbed into a shipping container at Alexandria before the container went by road through central Europe to Herefordshire, near Wales, in the UK. It took 17 days in the sealed container – and Sinbad survived despite having no food or water. He is presumably now acclimatising to the very different world of Moreton-on-Lugg.
