She was probably really hungry when she climbed onto that ship. The little calico's curiosity lead her to a floating oil rig 50km off the coast of Taranaki, New Zealand.
The three-month-old kitten was found stowed away on board a supply vessel that docked at a gasfield rig.
The workers were pretty surprised to find a feline guest aboard, but they quickly presented her a can with a can of sardines and some fresh water.
They named their new little crew member Maui and gave her some first class attention. After having a delicious lunch, she was greeted with plenty of cuddles from all the guys on board.
Since she couldn't stay, they called a helicopter and arranged a first class ticket to the St. Aubyn Vets clinic for a health check.
She passed her check-up with flying colors and got a bath for her troubles.
“She was very shy but passed the vets health check with flying colors," the clinic told Cats Meow Lovers. "With her exploring the rig she got a little dirty so we gave her a bath, towel dry and to make it all better she was given dinner and a cuddly bed.”
The little calico was loved by all who met her, but one crew member took a special shining to the sweet stowaway. He convinced his wife to take her home and now Maui has a forever family!
