Not only was there just one incident of a cat getting stuck in a car, but there were two this week. The first happened in Boston when a cat got stuck in a fan belt. The Siamese cat had climbed into the car for warmth and when the owner of the car turned on the ignition, he heard an animal in distress. When he opened up the hood, he found Coco the cat. Coco survived but has some severe lacerations due to the moving fan belt.
The second incident happened in Pennsylvania when a woman brought her car into a mechanic because she smelled cat urine. When the mechanic popped open the hood, to his surprise, he found a cat behind a headlight wedged in a fender well (I wondered how much the mechanic charged her). The cat had a few burn injuries to his paws but is expected to fully recover. Speedy recovery to you two and please remember car engines are not good hiding places.
