A trapped kitten who was crying out from under the bonnet of a car has been rescued by an RSPCA inspector.

The black kitten – aged around seven weeks – was found in a car engine at Llandegfan, Menai Bridge on Saturday (24 November).

Kitten rescued Menai Bridge Nov18 pic1RSPCA inspector Mike Pugh, who was called to assist, said: “The caller heard the sound of a kitten crying out from under the bonnet of her car, but when they lifted up the bonnet the kitten quickly hid in a space behind the engine.

“As the car is normally locked away in a garage the caller believes the kitten may have hitched a ride when she went to Waitrose the day before.”

Following a long time playing hide and seek with the kitten, Inspector Pugh managed to retrieve the kitten from the car engine.

“This kitten was scared and was visibly shaking, so it was a relief to finally be able to get her out of the engine,” he said.

“Once at an animal centre she was offered some food which she ate ravenously and placed in a warm heated bed. In no time the kitten began to purr and craved attention from anyone who offered it. Luckily she wasn’t injured in any way. She’s been nicknamed Rose – after Waitrose!”

The kitten wasn’t microchipped, so we are unable to trace an owner. If anyone has any information about this kitten please contact the inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018. If an owner is not found, she will be made available for rehoming in the near future.
