A kitten has had a lucky escape after getting stuck in the engine of a car in Barry.
The female, estimated to be 7-8 weeks old, had to be rescued by South Wales Fire Service after she was discovered in a Peugeot.
Staff at RSPCA Cymru are now trying to trace her owners.
Inspector Danielle Baber said: ”Kittens are curious by nature but luckily this cheeky creature’s adventure didn’t result in any harm coming to her.
"She is a very vocal little cat, with lots of personality, but sadly she isn’t microchipped or wearing ID so we have no idea where she came from. If anyone in the Barry area is missing a black kitten, I would urge them to contact us immediately.”
Anyone who thinks they know who this kitten belongs to is asked to contact the inspector’s information line on 0300 123 8018.
