A two-month-old kitten has survived a hot 200km trip from Papamoa to Auckland under the bonnet of a car.
Kim McMillan and husband Cam left Papamoa about 1pm to drive home to Auckland’s North Shore.
When they got home they heard the meowing and realised the noise was coming from their car.
It took about about five minutes to get the kitten out. The kitten was wedged into the car so tightly it would not have been able to remove itself.
They gave it some water and time to recover then took the kitten to the vet until its owner is found.
They have called it Lucky, as it was lucky it survived that trip.
