An 11-week-old kitten has been named Diesel after he was rescued from a van engine.
The RSPCA said they got a called from a driver in Kidderminster who heard what sounded like a kitten coming from his vehicle. After looking and not finding anything, he drove home. The following morning he lifted the bonnet and saw the kitten but it darted back down into the engine.
RSPCA inspector Suzi Smith said:
Diesel is about 11 weeks old and hasn’t been microchipped. He has been checked by a vet and is being cared for by the RSPCA Hereford Branch.
The animal charity is now appealing for information that could help them find the owner.
If an owner doesn’t come forward he will then be made available for rehoming.
