MEMPHIS, Tenn. — He might only be a few weeks old, but one kitten has already been through more than his fair share.
His name is Joey and he’s alive despite the odds.
It’s quite a surprise for some after hearing his story.
Staff at the Park Avenue Animal Hospital in Memphis told WREG’s Michael Quander a delivery driver heard a faint meow in the back of his truck. When he went to investigate, he discovered Joey had been shrink-wrapped to the top of a package.
The driver immediately cut the kitten out and took him to the vet to get checked out.
Professionals estimated Joey to be between 5- and 7-weeks-old and had likely been without food and water for close to a week.
It’s also believed he got stuck to the package at a facility in Chicago.
Joey is up for adoption. To inquire, please call the Park Avenue Animal Hospital.
