Kitten Hitches 120-Mile Ride In Spare Wheel Of An SUV

Kitten Hitches 120-Mile Ride In Spare Wheel Of An SUV

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A three-month-old kitten apparently hitched a 120-mile ride in the spare wheel well of a man`s SUV.
Marc Lichty left Olympia, Washington, after finishing work and heard meowing when he stopped at services on the way home but couldn`t see a cat, KPTV-TV reported.

When he reached his home in Tualatin, Oregon, he heard the meowing again and grabbed a flashlight. Sure enough, he says, `the cat was up underneath in the spare tyre spot.`"

Cats have an uncanny ability to squeeze into the tiniest spaces, my cat Molly loves to snooze under the fridge.

But this three-month old kitten`s desire to find a cozy place to snuggle almost cost her all of her nine lives.

Marc Lichty is going to adopt the little fur ball, I hope he keeps a close watch over the mischievous kitty.

I wish a Merry Christmas to the Lichty family, bless them for making a home for the tiny stowaway.
