Lifestyle| | By Margo Gothelf
After hearing a bizarre sound coming from her engine, a car owner new she had to investigate.
The unidentified owner of the car was driving home when she heard a peculiar sound. The front of her car had tiny meows coming out of it, yet there was no cat in sight.
However, the owner realized that an adult cat had somehow followed her car during her drive that morning. She quickly put the pieces together and figured out that a kitten must be stuck inside the engine. The owner immediately got some help from the people around her, but they could not locate the kitten.
“The mother cat had been waiting for the kitten, refusing to go, which indicated that it was still alive, so we would not give up,” Zheng Lu, a car technician, told Inside Edition.
The group of people knew they needed more professional help. They called a car service and a non-profit organization named Sunshine SOS, hoping they could help solve the problem.
Luckily, they were right and the two organizations were able to work together. The car service jacked up the car and took some pieces out in order to get to the kitten. After some maneuvering, the technicians were able to pull out the tiny cat.
“I was just eager to get it out as soon as possible,” Shu Tian, deputy head of the Fourth Team, Sunshine SOS, told Inside Edition.
The kitten was pulled out of the car without a scratch. The little kitten looked a little scared, but otherwise grateful that she was alive. Cats may sometimes be attracted to a warm car engine, which can sometimes have devastating consequences. Lucky for this little fluff, all was well.
