TAMPA - To the owner, the sound coming from her Toyota Scion didn't sound anything like an engine running. A peek underneath resulted in a phone call to the Tampa Humane Society.
Turns out a small kitten had managed to become wedged in the engine compartment.
As rescuers worked to free it, they found a second kitten with an injured paw in the engine area.
Both felines were safely extricated and treated for their injuries. Both will recover in a foster home and will eventually be adopted out.
The feral mother stood by and watched the event unfold. She was captured and will be spayed and vaccinated.
Her next stop: A new home with the Scion's owner.
