From Metro, an amazing story of felid survival in Brazil. The poor thing was wedged in an exhaust pipe—while the car was being used. I’d adopt it if I were in Brazil.
The motorist found the two-month-old creature wedged inside the exhaust system, with just its head and a paw sticking out. It was only when he took the vehicle to a garage to have the animal removed that mechanics noticed it was still alive. The part was taken out and rushed to a fire station where a crew cut the feline free. The kitten had intestinal surgery and is now recovering at a sanctuary in Rio Verde, western Brazil. Fire commander Coronel Candido Cleber said: ‘The kitten was cold and must have climbed into the engine to try to warm up. ‘But when the driver started the engine he was suddenly sucked in. ‘It’s a miracle he was still alive. The driver drove around for hours before deciding to find out what was wrong.’
