POOLER, Ga. - It was quite a big journey for such a small cat, but "Kitty Bitty" is finally heading home just in time for Christmas.
The cat managed to hitch a cross-country ride from Georgia to California in a Pepsi truck around the Fourth of July.
Animal services workers in Riverside County near Los Angeles picked him up at a distribution center for the soda company.
Thanks to Kitty Bitty's tags workers were able to track down his family to Pooler, Georgia, just outside Savannah.
Employees at the Riverside County Animal Services' shelter pooled their own money to help get the kitty a flight home.
They all wrote goodbyes on Kitty Bitty's carrier before sending him off with an ASPCA representative.
Safe travels Kitty Bitty!
