Kitten grabs 6-hour ride to western NY on gas tank

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

A kitten that hitched a six-hour ride from Connecticut to western New York curled up on top of a car's gas tank will be put up for adoption.

The cat was found by workers at Smitty's Transmissions in suburban Rochester when a Connecticut couple bought in their car after dropping their son off at the Rochester Institute of Technology. The couple had heard the cat purring.

The Democrat & Chronicle of Rochester reports that workers found the kitten curled in a tiny alcove above the gas tank. They named the cat Connecticut.

The kitten was taken to Lollypop Farm, a shelter that takes in foster kittens, until she puts on enough weight to be spayed and adopted.

Shelter workers believe the hitching kitten was feral.
