An eight-week-old kitten has been rescued in Aylesford after getting stuck in a car engine.
The kitten had been hiding under a car bonnet overnight in Mackenders Close, Eccles, Aylesford on Saturday 8th December at around 10am when a motorist heard a noise and lifted the car bonnet, spotting the cat inside.
The scared kitten then jumped out of the car and ran into the car engine compartment of the next vehicle - getting himself stuck.
The motorist called the RSPCA who came to the kitten’s rescue, alongside Kent Fire and Rescue Service.
The kitten - who has now been named Spark Plug, or ‘Sparky’ - was uninjured but covered in oil.
He is now being cared for by animal welfare officers at the RSPCA Canterbury branch, who are looking for a foster home for him.
