The old cliche of firefighters recusing a cat stuck in a tree took a 21st century twist Monday when New York City police officers pulled a cat from the innards of an SUV.
It happened on Arthur Avenue in The Bronx. The cat was stuck in the engine of a 2005 Nissan Murano.
No one knows how it got there. The car’s owners told police that he had driven about 2 miles before realizing something was wrong.
Two detectives freed the cat from the engine block.
The cat was in good condition at Animal Care and Control.
