Lucky Black Kitten Survives 284-Mile Truck Ride

For anyone who thinks black cats are bad luck, this story may change your mind.

When a police officer pulled over a truck driver in Sugar Grove, Illinois for speeding, he made an unexpected discovery. Following the sounds of a cat meowing, the copper found a small black kitten wedged into the truck’s engine compartment.

According to MSN, the kitty had gotten himself into the semi 284 miles earlier in Wisconsin. Luckily, the cat was found to be in good health when the Kane County Animal Shelter picked him up.

The staff have named the feline E.B. for engine block.
