This is the story of a kitten that made it all the way from Singapore aboard a ship. In nature, an entire litter of anything rarely survives. That is one of the reasons why we have such a huge dog/cat population now, except that we keep them alive only to discard them later.
I like stories of survival though-this little one clearly had more life force than the others. I hope his/her new life in America is worthy of that effort.
