A tiny 10-week-old kitten survived after getting stuck under a car engine for three days and a trip of 14 miles on the road. She was rescued and given a second chance at life.
Caroline Roberts and her husband Norman first heard the kitten but they weren't able to locate the trapped kitten until a few days later, "the distressed calls were traced to their neighbor's Chevrolet Matiz, which had been driven to Maesteg and back just days earlier," reported Wales Online.
"Thanks to the efforts of neighbours, and Mr Roberts’ skills as a mechanic," Shell was freed from the car and taken by Cats Protection's Bridgend Adoption Centre in Bryncethin. She was "dehydrated, underweight and extremely distressed at first, but is slowly coming to terms with her ordeal."
"She's a very, very lucky kitten. I think she must have used up about six or seven of her nine lives," said the shelter via Wales Online.
Today Shell is back from the vet and is doing much better.
