The car’s owner heard tiny miaows coming from his car and called the fire service - who sent three men to rescue the emaciated eight-week old feline.
The kitten has been treated by a vet who is also a member of the fire department. It has been wormed and vaccinated, and is looking for a new home.
Animals getting wedged in cars is not uncommon, and usually they don't end well. There was a very fortunate badger in Norway who survived a collision with a vehicle.
Cats and kittens often crawl under car hoods for warmth, but risk death or severe injury when the engine is started up.
Anyone interested in adopting this little cat - who may only have eight lives left - can get in touch with Commander Kurt Tripamer on 0664 435 36 12.
