Meet Honda the kitten who was found under the hood of a car in a parking garage in Boston on Wednesday night.

RandyKitten Found Under Hood of Car was working at a parking garage in Boston. He and his friend heard kitten cries and were searching for where it was coming from. They finally narrowed it down to one car – a Honda CRV. They started searching under the car but couldn’t find the kitty. The went into the building and found the owner of the car. She came down and popped the hood and there – sitting on the engine block – was our new friend Honda!

This morning, Honda is happy to be safe and warm. Honda has been evaluated and it is determined he is in good health and about 16 weeks old. His fur is dirty and scruffy in spots so it looks like he had been outside for a while. We are so grateful to Randy, his friend, and the cars owner for making the extra effort to save a life.

This is an important lesson to car owners to make the effort to bang on the hoods of their cars before starting it up especially this time of year. Cats are seeking the warmth under the hood and may not make any noise for you to know they are there.
