Curiosity very nearly killed the cat, but some kind volunteers brought him back. Jacqueline Lake of Nova Scotia was mailing a parcel when, unbeknownst to her, her family's beloved tabby cat Baloo climbed inside. Four days later, after hours of searching for the feline, Lake got a call from the recipient of a tire rim she had shipped to Alberta, about 17 hours away. It turns out their package had come with a little something extra...

Lake is eternally grateful to the organization for saving the family's kitty!
"I didn't have money to travel to Montreal to get my cat back, but we got him. I didn't have to pay anything. It was pretty amazing they did this for us."
Good news: the cat was microchipped so he can easily be tracked if he ever gets mailed somewhere again! https://t.co/HxNdKY4eAJ— Alyssa Ashton (@Alyssa Ashton) 1544931881.0

Of course, there's not much you can do if the cat mailed itself intentionally.

Baloo may disagree, however.
Baloo looks like he’s ready for this week to be over, though https://t.co/TN0kwZ1u8a— Kate McKenna (@Kate McKenna) 1544973633.0
Everyone's glad you're ok, Baloo! Maybe think twice before wasting another one of your nine lives on a 17-hour trip across the country.
