Tiny Kitten Rescued After Getting Stuck by Engine of Police Car While at McDonald's

Share

In the cold winter months, it isn’t uncommon to see stray cats hiding near car engines. The warmth of the engine is inviting to the furry felines and the shelter of the hood provides protection from predators.

These months are when car owners need to keep an eye out for these adorable little creatures, because once a driver starts their car, a cat could face severe injuries or even death.

In the summer, it is less common to find a cat hiding in the hood of your car. After all, who wants to get near something warm when it’s already hot outside?

On May 28 in Cocoa, Florida, a kitten was hanging around in the parking lot of a McDonald’s restaurant. He began his journey by exploring a car that was owned by Oasha Santiago, a McDonald’s employee.

“We saw him by my tire, and then I came out to look for him and he ended up in my engine,” said Santiago.

Firefighters were called and were able to get the kitten out safely as he squirmed and mewed.

The only problem was that the animal broke free and got itself stuck in a police patrol car almost immediately after the first rescue.

Firefighter Marc Sciacca wasted no time in helping the kitten once again.



“I looked for him for a while, and we finally found him in my engine. He came out and ended up in the cop car. And now I have a best friend.”

“It feels good to save anything, especially a little animal,” said Sciacca. “I got a soft spot for animals.”

According to the firefighters, this wasn’t the first time the curious kitten has gotten stuck. They have come to his rescue multiple times before.

Santiago decided soon after the rescue that she would adopt the cat and gave her new best friend the perfect name: Mickey D.

While many cats and their owners have a bond, this relationship will be extra special for Santiago and Mickey D.

For this troublesome little stray, a scary journey ended with him getting something that everyone desires: a home and family.
