Cat survives cross country trip in drawer.

RENO, Nev. -- Lilly didn't see any of her two-week cross country trip from Tarrytown, N.Y., to Reno.

The 2-year-old Siamese cat disappeared in New York on April 20 after movers showed up to pack the belongings of Henry Leonard and Vicki Plechner.

"We were just sick. She was a little kitten when we got her," Leonard, 72, told the Reno Gazette-Journal.

They searched everywhere for their cat and put up reward signs around the neighborhood before they left for Reno. They even checked some of their boxes before they were moved.

"We tried everything," the retired chiropractor said.

Last Wednesday night, a worker took the last piece of furniture off the truck. When he opened a drawer to get a grip, there was Lilly.

"We were dumbfounded, speechless," Leonard said. "You'll never find two more happier people."

Leonard said Lilly didn't move much that first night.

"We got her a little water and some baby food," he said. "Then she came around. Now she's fine, running around and purring.

"She's just a little Siamese. And we love her," he said.

Wow, two-weeks without food or water. That's nuts.

Yeah, then you'd have to explain claw marks on your junk.
