A few months ago I was working late on a Friday night and stopped for gas. While I was filling up I heard these cries so I investigated and found a kitten underneath the hood of a car that was there to get worked on. I tried to catch him but he ran away.
So I went back to work (we were transferring corals from the CFO's aquarium at home which he was selling, to the tank at work) and figured I would go back with some food after we were done.
So a few hours later after working on the tank and getting some dinner and then being stopped at a sobriety check point cuz I'm stupid and told them I had 2 margaritas....
Apparently that's what everyone
says, even the drunks, so if you have had something to drink than LIE! LOL
, I stopped at 7-11 and got some kibble and a can of cat food and went back to the gas station.
I got out of the car and he was still crying. So I put the food underneath the car and realized he was up underneath the hood of the car next to the one he was in before.
I carefully lifted the hood and reached in real quick and caught him. A teenie tiny 6-7 week old all black kittie with medium length hair and bright green eyes. He tried to get away but I carried him to my car and let him go and he just flew
around and banged into all the windows trying to get out and he finally settled underneath the seat and just cried this pathetic cry all the way home.
Then I had to get him out from under the seat and that took forever. I emptied my purse out and put him in and then brought him in the house and set him up in the bathroom. He eagerly ate some canned food and drank a lot of water. I put him in one of my carriers with a blanket and a litte stuffed cat I have. He would just snuggle up to that cat!
So that is how Buick
came to be with me!!
Buick of course for the type of car I found him under. Good thing he moved to the next car, otherwise he would have been Plymouth!
