Kitten travels 30 miles in engine compartment

SUNNYVALE, Calif. — A San Francisco Bay Area man had an unexpected passenger in his car during the 30-mile trip to his parents' house: a small, stray kitten that had somehow found a place to ride in the engine compartment.

Jim Michelotti says he heard meowing after pulling into a gas station on Saturday. A woman next to him said it was coming from his 1993 Mitsubishi Diamante, so he began checking around.

With the help of a flashlight, Michelotti found the black kitten on a bar between the engine and firewall, just inches from the ground. The cat was greasy and scared, but otherwise OK.

It had apparently ridden from Michelotti's home in the Silicon Valley city of Sunnyvale.

Michelotti says the cat appears to be abandoned.
