Cat survives 130-mile trip in car engine on Christmas Day, miraculously unharmed

(Meredith) – One very lucky cat received a Christmas miracle when she survived a 130-mile trip in a car’s engine in England.

According to Celia Hammond Animal Trust (an animal shelter in London), the adorable calico cat had ridden in the car’s engine from Birmingham to London on Christmas Day – a nearly 3-hour trip.

When the driver pulled up to a block of flats in London and parked, he heard meowing coming from under the car’s hood. After popping the hood open, he discovered the cat in the engine compartment. A group of people standing outside the flats managed to grab the cat and take her inside their home.

Miraculously, the cat was unharmed. The rescuers then called the animal shelter.

The animal shelter said on Facebook that the cat is a very sweet, friendly cat, so they suspect she is a well-loved pet. Unfortunately, she is not microchipped, so the shelter is working to find her owner back in Birmingham.

If you have any information about the cat’s owner, please contact the animal shelter at 020-7474-8811 or email canningtown@celiahammond.org.
