My sister found a kitten under the hood of her car when she arrived at work one day. She called my mom to come out with a cat crate and they caught it, took it home, and named it Lucky.

/it's twoo

This happened to a guy I used to work with. Leaving his house for a night of delivering pizzas, his new kitten snuck into the garage and stowed away sitting somewhere on top of the engine block. When he arrived at the pizza shop, he heard a frantic meowing from under the hood.

He walked in with a wide-eyed, slightly blackened kitten and declared that he was either going to be starting work late, or we were going to have a store mascot for the night. He started work late.

I had a cat do that. Rode under my father's car for 50 miles when he went on a business trip.

Cat never hung out under the car again.

Father never let me forget that he chased my damned cat down the street to bring it home instead of leaving it.

No shiat. It takes me ~55 mins to drive 70 miles.

That was stupid to cancel his meeting. I would have been pissed if I was the other guy

This is not unusual for the Los Angles area where I live and I would imagine its the same in many large metro areas.

The only way I ever heard these stories ending was with the cat slipping into the engine fan or getting caught up in a belt/pulley.

This actually happened to me and a friend of mine when his kitten got out one night. It is the single most disturbing experience of my life.

Google Maps says: Driving directions to Kearny, AZ
70.1 mi - about 1 hour 22 mins

44 miles of it is US Highway 60

When I lived in the countryside, we had a ton of strays living around. Every morning, we'd check under the car before we left, but inevitably, we'd miss one, and as we drove away from home, we'd see a furball tumble out onto the road and then go scampering into the ditch.

/Happened one time after we'd hit the highway, too. Was surprised the cat found her way home after that. No matter how many times it happened, thankfully all of them would be fine after, although they'd then go and do it again.
//They would hide somewhere in the rear of the vehicle, so when they fell out, they were squarely between the rear wheels without any risk of being run over. Really the only danger to them would be if another car would be behind us.

You've never been stuck on the 401 in Toronto at rush hour, where 2.5 hours to cover 70 miles is considered "flowing".

this happened with one of our family cats (outdoor cat) as well. all ended well, but it is certainly scary and surprising when it happens.

we did know that our cat liked to sleep up under the hood or in the wheel well, but until this time she had always jumped out from under the car when we opened the garage door or a car door, etc.

she got a ~30-45 minute ride covering 20 miles, part of which is up and over some small california coastal mountains. upon arriving and hearing her cries, she ran out from under the car halfway covered in soot.

The pussy was concealed by a spare tire.

Always check under the carriage for cats.

Well, the 60 is usually an awful mess anywhere near rush hour.
Then the rest of the way we are talking mainly 2 lane roads.
And if he got stuck behind my dad....
Sorry cat in the car dude...
