Cats look for the craziest retreats. However, climbing into the engine compartment of a car for fear is something new even for the velvet paws.
She ran across the highway and got so frightened that she got stuck in the engine compartment of a car: In a Facebook post, the Howard County Police Department posted a very special operation. The protagonist – a grey baby kitten.
As RTL News reports, a motorist was driving on the highway when he saw the little ball of fur crossing the dangerous road. He must have pulled his car over to the right to help the baby kitty – and the little adventure cat climbed into his engine compartment and promptly got stuck there.

The frightened motorist immediately called the police. She arrived and freed the anxiously meowing cat after some efforts, as the footage of the bodycams shows: With a courageous grip, one of the officers grabbed the engine and finally rescued the cute creature from its predicament. Emergencies like this don't seem to be commonplace for the policeman either, because his astonished summary can be heard in the audio recordings: "I've never had an operation like this before. What on earth?"
With the patrol car to the shelter: kitten comes to accommodation
Unharmed, officers eventually took the kitten to a local shelter, the Howard County Animal Control and Adoption Center.
In its coverage on Facebook, the Police Department writes: "This is a call you don't get every day: A motorist on Route 29 reported that a kitten ran across the road and somehow got stuck in the engine. Sergeant Aaron Miller and PFC Chang Lee responded and, with a little persuasion, were able to get the kitten out of the engine and under the vehicle and put it in the patrol car that took it to the Howard County Animal Control and Adoption Center!"
