KITTEN STUCK IN BUMPER SURVIVES ROAD TRIP
Last June, a little kitten went for the ride of its life after a couple drove over 400 miles not knowing a cat was stuck inside the front bumper of the car. Russ Perry thought he heard meows coming from around his car before he departed on a road trip from Phoenix to California, but didn't think too much about it. When the couple made their first pit stop in Quartzsite, Arizona, they heard the meowing again. They searched everywhere for fear that a cat got caught under the hood, but couldn't find anything. The couple heard meowing at two more stops after that and finally took their car to the mechanic. The mechanic traced the source of the meows to a plastic guard under the front bumper. After popping it out, he found a 5-week-old kitten! One of the owners of the repair shop decided to keep the cat, who was named Phoenix after its original hometown.
