A truck driver who arrived at the Spokane Valley Target warehouse this week with a shipment from Albany, Ore., didn't realize he had an unauthorized passenger in the back. When he opened the door to unload, a cat dashed out and hid from workers, who called SCRAPS for help.

The cat was caught and taken to SCRAPS, which contacted the Albany Herald in the hopes of finding the owner, according to SCRAPS press release. Against all odds the owner was located and today the cat is leaving town for the trip back to Albany. This time, she gets to ride in front. Photo courtesy of SCRAPS.
