Phoenix (Ap) A cat who took a three-week cross-country ride to Arizona in a storage container will be going home to Florida.

Arizona Humane Society officials say the two-year-old gray cat crawled into the locker in Pompano Beach, Florida, while it was being loaded for a move to Phoenix. The container spent time in a Florida warehouse and on a semi-trailer before being delivered to a facility in Phoenix.

A worker heard the cat meowing inside the container Tuesday. The Kitty, named Meatloaf, was hungry and thirsty but unharmed.

Meatloaf's owners had put up posters around their neighborhood. The apartment manager remembered them when the humane society called.

Officials will give meatloaf time to recover before flying him home.
