When a guy was waiting at a Hardee’s drive-through window in Kentucky, he spotted an employee giving him strange stares. He suddenly noticed loud meows were coming through the drive-through window’s speaker, and they were originating from under his car.
He pulled over and peered behind his car, and his concerns were confirmed: there was a cat trapped beneath his car, with no chance of getting out on her own.
The manager walked over to Midas of Frankfort, which was conveniently located next door to the restaurant, to see if any of the mechanics could assist. They agreed to assist right once and had the automobile delivered to their shop so they could get back to work. Everyone was terrified about the cat and hoped they could get her out of the car as soon as possible.
“She attempted to crawl through a hole in the rear subframe and became stuck when she realized she couldn’t retreat backwards,” D. Scott Bourne, owner and managing director of the Midas of Frankfort, told The Dodo.
The kitten had been stranded for several hours at that time and was plainly bewildered and afraid. The technicians chatted to her and petted her gently while they worked to dismantle the automobile and rescue her, attempting to let her realize that they were there to assist her.
Bourne added, “She was fairly gentle since she was really exhausted and dehydrated.” “It was well over 90 degrees outside, and it was difficult to determine how hot it was under the truck.”
The technicians were finally able to rescue the cat after more than an hour of effort and disassembling sections of the automobile, and everyone was relieved to find that she looked to be in largely good condition. The car’s owner was so thankful for their assistance that he offered to compensate the mechanics, but they declined. They only wanted to help the cat, and knowing she was safe was enough compensation.
Marigold, the kitten, was tended for overnight by her rescuers before being transported to the doctor first thing in the morning. She was roughly 9 weeks old when the vet examined her, and she was in excellent condition except from ear mites and a few small wounds and scrapes. Marigold had miraculously survived her experience because to the affection and perseverance of her rescuers.
