Woman keeps kitten after 80 mi trip under hood

Added On August 19, 2016

A six-week-old kitten has a new home -- after surviving an 80 mile journey under the hood of a car.
Kelly Hawthorne drove from Clinton, Missouri back home to Shawnee, Kansas on Sunday.
She heard meowing, popped the hood and discovered the kitten, which promptly ran off.
Later on the family went out to eat and on the drive home, realized the cat was back under the hood!
Hawthorne said it appears the kitten really wanted to be a part of this family.

"Well I wasn't planning on getting another cat but the story surrounding this little kitten is too amazing for me to surrender it - I have to keep it."
