This is the happy ending story of a kitten who took a ride (two, in fact) in the engine compartment of a car and in the process found a forever home.
Kelly Hawthorne lives in Shawnee, Kansas. She recently took a trip where she drove 80 miles from Missouri back to Shawnee. She wasn’t alone in her journey: a six-week-old kitten was under the hood of her car in the engine compartment. Kelly opened her hood and let the little guy out and he ran away.
The next day Kelly found the kitten under the hood of her car again as she heard meowing as she was driving. She believes herself to be a cat whisperer and that the cat was telling her she had been chosen to be his new human servant. Kelly describes her decision to adopt the kitten
“Well, I wasn’t planning on getting another cat, but the story surrounding this little kitten is too amazing for me to surrender it, I have to keep it.”
The kitten was checked over by a veterinarian and is doing well. He’s the newest member of the Hawthorne family, who have already fallen in love with him.
This little guy is fortunate to be alive. Always remember to either beat on the hood of your vehicle or to physically raise the hood and check the engine area before starting your car. Especially once cold weather arrives and cats venture to any warm place they can find.
