Miracle: Kitten Survives 36-Mile Trip On Truck Engine
"A Missouri family said their 9-month-old cat survived a 36-mile trip on the engine of a truck with only a few minor scratches.
Johnathan Widdows of Fredericktown said he picked up his son from the boy`s grandmother`s house Sunday morning and when they arrived home, his son heard a faint cry coming from under the hood.
Widdows said he opened the hood and discovered the family`s cat, Nyan, trembling on top of the engine."
Nine times out of ten when I can`t find my cat she`s hiding someplace where it`s warm: The back of the fridge, on top of a computer, or near a heating vent.
Ebony doesn`t fool me, she sometimes sits on my lap because it`s warm, not out of companionship. If you can`t find your kitty, check out all the warm places in your home.
And for God`s sake before you go on a long road trip make sure your cat isn`t under the hood.
Nyan may have used up a couple of her lives, but the kitten will be around for a few more years, as long as she stays out of truck engines.
