PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - An upstate New York woman says a 6-week-old kitten hitched a ride on the outside of her vehicle as she drove about 100 miles over North Country roads.
Stacey Pulsifer tells the Press-Republican of Plattsburgh that she recently drove from her home in Plattsburgh to Elizabethtown in the Adirondacks, then back to her apartment. Along the way she stopped for coffee and heard meowing coming from her Jeep.
She asked two friends to help her search the vehicle. They finally found the kitten wedged behind the Jeep's bumper and had to cut it free.
Pulsifer, who has since adopted the hitchhiker, estimates the lucky feline was lodged in the car for about 22 hours and traveled some 100 miles. She suffered a broken paw during the ride.
