When Brad VanCleave, a Navy reservist from Murrieta, was working as a government contractor at the Baghdad International Airport in July 2015, he cared for a kitten he discovered in a shipping container. He couldn’t get the cat out of his mind after returning to the US. Thanks to the SPCA International and Operation Baghdad Pups, VanCleave was reunited with Mr. Meowgli at LAX airport after a lengthy journey via Frankfurt, Germany and New York City. To read more about this lucky cat and to watch a video of the joyful reunion, visit CBS News.
