Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Cat found under bonnet of car in east end of Glasgow

I’ve tried to do my little bit to help raise awareness of cats that like to crawl into engine compartments, attracted by the heat of engine while the vehicle is parked, especially during winter.

While there have been quite a few tales of cats discovered in such places, fortunate to be found and released, most of these have not been reported from my area, but now we have one from the east end, where one such unfortunate wanderer was found:

A shocked motorist found a cat trapped under the bonnet of his parked car.

The man realised the feline was stuck between the engine of his parked car in the Mount Vernon Area of Glasgow.

He discovered the trapped pet as he stopped to park his car after driving for a period of time.

The cat was freed and escaped unhurt and is now being cared for by animal rescue workers.

The Scottish SPCA is now seeking the owner of the cat after they were called out to rescue the pet on Sunday June 8.

The cat is now in the care of the charity’s Glasgow Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Cardonald, where he has been nicknamed Auto.
