HACKETTSTOWN, N.J. (AP) — A cat has been rescued from the engine of a pickup truck after a 28-mile ride from Pennsylvania to New Jersey.
Unbeknownst to the driver, the orange and white feline had crawled into the engine compartment. It was taken on a ride Thursday from East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, to the Mars Chocolate North America plant in Hackettstown, New Jersey.
Employees there heard the cat’s meows and called police.
The cat was freed from the fan blades with the help of the town’s public works department and Mars employees.
