Our little Engine!
Friends, this little girl was discovered by my husband 2 or 3 months ago while driving to work. He first heard this muffled cries at a stop street and at first thought it is some kitten alongside the road so he ignored it. However, when it became louder and more pitiful the thought struck him that it might be a kitten stuck in his engine! He got off the road immediately and when he opened the front there she was! Eyes huge from fear and meowing her lungs out all the while hanging onto the warm engine for dear life about to fall in between some ugly places!
He took her and turned around and brought her home to me and we checked for any hurting places like burn marks but miraculously she did not get injured at all except for the trauma of being in a moving car hanging onto a very hot engine! She is such a high spirited, feisty little thing that it is no wonder she quickly overcame that trauma and became part of our huge cat family in a blink of the eye.
So, always do check for unexpected little things who might be hiding in your engine before you start your car in the morning, especially in wintertime when they are more likely to search for warm places to sleep in.
We named her Engine since that's where we met her and she purrs as loud as the sound of a car engine to boot! LOL
