Watch: Troopers rescue kitten from engine compartment of patrol vehicle

Sept. 5 (UPI) -- Indiana State Police troopers said a "real CATastrophie" was averted when they were able to rescue a kitten that climbed into the engine compartment of a patrol vehicle.

The ISP's Sellersburg post said in a Facebook post that a pair of troopers heard meowing coming from underneath the hood of a parked patrol vehicle.

The troopers elicited the help of the district's mechanic to raise the vehicle and extract the kitten from below.

"Thankfully, we avoided a real CATastrophie today," the post said.
