TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Two Florida kittens have at least eight lives left.
The Humane Society of Tampa Bay responded to a call Thursday from a woman who heard a crying noise from the engine of her Toyota Scion. It turned out to be a small kitten that had wedged itself into the engine.
When rescuers were extricating the kitty, a second kitten was found in the engine with an injured foot. Both animals were removed and treated. They will recover in a foster home and eventually be adopted out.
The kittens' feral mother stood by during the rescue. She will be spayed, vaccinated and cared for by the owner of the Scion.
