KSTP’s Morgan Reddekopp reports a Columbia Heights cat took a ride to an Eagan Amazon facility in a semi. “I first assumed it was maybe ‘bring your cat to work day,’ but low and behold, that cat actually came in one of the inbound trailers,” Amazon Station Manager David Aldahl said. “It was very friendly. It was purring and seem to be happy to be found. We’re very happy that it made its way home.”
