One life down, eight to go: This 2-month-old kitten was recently found wedged inside a car's exhaust system, with just its head and a paw sticking out. When the car's driver realized the animal was still alive, he rushed the part -- and kitten -- to the local fire department, where the kitten was cut out.
According to fire commander Coronel Candido Cleber:
The kitten was cold and must have climbed into the engine to try to warm up. But when the driver started the engine he was suddenly sucked in. It's a miracle he was still alive. The driver drove around for hours before deciding to find out what was wrong.
Now for the good news -- the kitten had intestinal surgery and is now recovering at a sanctuary in Brazil.
