“With the qualities of cleanliness, affection, patience,

Dignity, and the immense courage that cats have,

How many of us would be capable of becoming cats?”


Fernand Mery


Music: Alone On The Sea


Although I rescue a lot of dogs

I also admire and rescue felines

And this feline’s story is amazing

It is hard to believe he is still alive


He wandered onto a Chinese cargo ship

And was trapped in a crate, for three weeks

He had absolutely no food or water all this time

So he instinctively ‘shut down’ and went to sleep


Three weeks later, when the crate was opened in California

He was discovered there, eyes closed, curled up in a furry ball

He should have died; he could not walk, see, or make any sound

He was taken to a shelter, and now he thrives, amazing one and all


And just like Rags, the canine expressway survivor, many now wanted him

Over 80 people soon applied to adopt and take home this cat named ‘Ni Hao’

His name means ‘Hello’ a fitting name for a feline that journeyed 6,500 miles

And was able to survive, without drinking or eating for three weeks, somehow


Ni Hao, the courageous cargo ship stowaway, now has a loving home in California

But there are thousands of deserving felines like him in shelters all across this nation

Please don’t wait for the next cargo ship to arrive from across the sea, to adopt a cat

Each and every feline just like Ni Hao deserves a home, filled with love and affection


“What greater gift than the love of a cat.”


Charles Dickens

Ni Hao deserves the love and attention of all the people in the world but we should not wait for another Ni Hao to adop as Ed.Kostro has stressed in the poem. Wonderful.

Amazing! We too have a rescue cat.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 9/4/2012
I don't love cats as pets. I think they should be allowed to be wild because they are very good at surviving in many environments. Your story reminds me of those cats we occasionally found sealed into the ceilings or walls of mobile homes we built on an assembly line and then, days later after sitting out in the yard in the heat in the cold, would come to final finishing and we would hear a faint meow, break open the wall or ceiling and let the cat out. After stuffing themselves in mice and birds they found in the factory, these wild cats would crawl off to sleep in insulation only to find themselves walled in by a quick assembly line.

Another gem of compassion shared. Thank you.

Mr. Ed ~
"Ni Hao" hell-o. Your story is an amazing journey.
I am so glad you have a loving home. Thank you
Mr. Ed for this rescue story. Kitties have been
in my life since I was nine. A yellow tabby named
Prince was my first kitty.

This is an amazing story of one felines will to live, to be found, adopted and ultimately to be loved! It is good to be back on AD; I have missed your animal resue stories/poems and the love you have for your furry friends that I read behind each of your offerings. Well done, Ed.

chuckle, and mine just arrive out at the pasture fence

so glad this little fellow will now have a loving forever home, had heard about him on the news and wondered how he was doing.

It is amazing how all these creatures manage
to survive (dogs and cats). How their instinct
to do what they can kicks in. All but one of
my cats came from a shelter or were rescued.
They are all special and deserve a loving home.

Mankind seems to forget that these beautiful
heaven sent animals (dogs and cats) have
feelings too. They aren't toys we get tired
of and discard when the newness of a puppy or
kitten wear off. These are our family
members and our gift. People need to think
long and hard before they buy one. They
are a lifetime commitment and suffer the
same rejection feelings and such that any
human would.

I am grateful this little soul was saved.
Maybe he can give a lesson to many
and I do hope that the owners love him
the rest of his natural life not because
he was a celebrity for that moment. All
deserve a chance.

Love and Light

You sure got your ears to the ground my friend, the amazing stories you bring, bless you!

Hey Ed!

Wow! What a story with such a delightful ending! Now I know what it means when they say a cat has 9 lives. God must have big plans for this feline named Ni Hao. Perhaps it is to bring joy to a lonely person who can be an inspirational writer. My Sammy boy brings me joy and love every day unconditionally. How can we ever be like that? No I doubt if a human can ever be a match for the love of a cat.

May you have an abundance of peace, love and blessings for all that you do.

John Michael
