Kitten survives 230-mile journey in the car engine compartment

Animal rescuers in the United Kingdom reported that a kitten survived a 230-mile voyage in the engine compartment of a car from Wales to Leeds, England.

According to the RSPCA, the driver informed rescuers that he arrived in Leeds and opened the hood of the car to investigate a weird noise that was initially supposed to be an engine problem.

When the man noticed there was a kitten trapped in the car engine and it did not come out when he offered it food, he called the RSPCA.

“I managed to reach the poor kitten and bring him to safety,” said Rebecca Goulding, an animal rescue officer, in a news release.

“He was completely covered in grease, but he escaped with no injuries, so he’s a very lucky cat.”

“The caller explained that they’d heard a strange noise all the way from South Wales and had assumed it was something wrong with the engine.”

Goulding believes the kitten was imprisoned for the whole four-hour travel.

She stated, “He’s so lucky to have not been burnt or injured. He’s definitely used up one of his nine lives on the trip.”

The RSPCA Halifax is looking for the 6-week-old kitten, christened Tom Jones by Goulding. Officials are attempting to ascertain whether the kitten is a stray or a missing pet.
