Kitten Rescued From Car Engine After Ride to Work

By Bri Luginbill More Blogs by This Author

Starting our cars is just part of the ritual we go through each day. We wake up, have that morning cup of coffee, and make our way to our vehicles for the daily ride to work, school, etc.

For nurse Victoria Feldman however, the day began a little differently. When she started her engine, it wasn’t making much noise. Fortunately, she was still able to drive it to her nursing class, but as she pulled into the parking lot her car let out a huge screech!

Panicked, Victoria stopped her car, stepped out of the driver’s seat, and started inspecting under the hood. To her surprise, a furry face stared up at her – a cat had nestled itself inside her engine. And it wasn’t too happy about it. The poor thing was terrified and dirty from the oil.

Luckily, a police car was driving past and Victoria flagged him down hysterically. Police officer Rodriguez pulled up next to her car.“She looked a bit frantic," he said, “I shined my flashlight under the hood and sure enough, there were these two little eyes and a pink mouth and he was yowling.”

Rodriguez and Victoria worked together to rescue this little fellow. According to Rodriguez, “the cat knew the car better than some mechanics I know.”

The cat darted to and fro inside the car, making it difficult for either of them to catch him. It took two hours until they were finally able to save him. They wrapped a blanked around him and Rodriguez comforted the terrified feline. He reminisced about holding the little ball of fur telling reporters that as soon as he held her, her alarmed meows ceased and she began purring. “I could tell it looked at me and said ‘thank you.

Of course, this story wouldn’t be complete without even more of happy ending - Victoria decided to adopt the kitty! So now it has a good home from the woman who saved her life!
