BOSTON, May 17 (UPI) — A cat in Boston has recuperated from injuries it suffered last month when it found itself in a car’s engine as the vehicle’s ignition started.
Despite having multiple lacerations and a broken leg while inside the car’s engine, officials at the Animal Rescue League said Coco the cat is now healthy and ready for adoption, the Boston Herald reported Thursday.
“She was so badly hurt, yet friendly, and just a really sweet cat,” Animal Rescue League official Jennifer Wooliscroft said of the lucky feline.
The cat had apparently sought shelter and warmth near the car’s engine but was unable to escape when the vehicle’s owner decided to go for a drive, the Herald said.
The newspaper said the cat had a microchip containing its owner’s contact data implanted under its skin but the information was out of date and so worthless.
