The cat was in neighbor Lisa Kinsell’s car, and she says her dog was “going back and forth to the car. That’s how I thought the kitten might be there, but I didn’t see it or anything until later.
Lisa said “when I opened my hood and meowed, yes there was a kitten that answered me. I couldn’t see her at the time. We tried unsuccessfully for about three days to retrieve this kitten and eventually I had to take it to a store. I asked another neighbor to follow me a good distance from the car in case the kitten fell.
Clyde’s Tire and Brake technicians were able to save the cat after removing parts from the car for nearly an hour.
