Kitten’s crazy ride brings him to AHS

It was quite an adventure for this 9-week-old kitten who was recovered from the engine compartment of a Toyota Camry last month after the driver heard meowing while traveling on a freeway. Now “Camry” is ready for adoption at the Arizona Humane Society (submitted photo).

It was quite an adventure for this 9-week-old kitten who was recovered from the engine compartment of a Toyota Camry last month after the driver heard meowing while traveling on a freeway. Now “Camry” is ready for adoption at the Arizona Humane Society (submitted photo).

The Arizona Humane Society’s Emergency Animal Medical Technicians (EAMTs) have seen it all and respond to more than 10,000 emergency rescues and animal cruelty investigations each year. Yet, with kitten season in full swing, there’s been a feline frenzy as animal rescuers save curious felines from precarious situations. From palm trees to walls to drains, the rescues have now shifted over to car engines, a popular place for kittens to hide at night.

A little tuxedo cat went for the ride of his life last month and a driver exited the 202 freeway after hearing frantic meows coming from the car’s engine. Fortunately, little 9-week-old Camry was in good shape and was just a bit dirty and dehydrated after he was pulled from the engine by EAMTs. The affectionate feline seemed thankful to have been rescued and purred the entire time during his medical checkup (which he passed with flying colors).

Now Camry is looking for a forever home where he can reside as an indoor cat. He likes playing in boxes, pouncing on toy mice, climbing into open cabinets and snuggling with you in bed.

Camry is available at the Sunnyslope Campus located at 9226 N. 13th Ave. His adoption fee is $100 and includes his neuter surgery and first vaccinations. For more information call 602-997-7585 and ask for animal number A534623. He may be adopted by the time you visit the shelter but there are hundreds of other kittens and cats who are waiting for a new home and you can see them all by visiting www.azhumane.org.
