Kitty Takes A Ride

Kitten travels from Connecticut to Rochester, New York perched on a car's gas tank.

The inbox at the Lollypop Farm animal rescue agency in Fairport, New York has been overflowing lately with emails about a very special animal.

A kitten was found by mechanics at Smitty's Transmission in nearby Henrietta after a family said they heard it's meowing during a trip from Connecticut.

The people at Lollypop Farm say she's lucky to be alive and they can’t believe what she has been through.

"You don't hear those stories very often. It makes her pretty special I think," says Karin Forte, Lollypop Farm's foster care coordinator.

They've named the kitten "Connecticut".

The one and a half pound, 6-week-old, homeless kitten decided to hitch a ride to Rochester on top of the gas tank of a car bound for RIT from Connecticut.

She was lucky, but not in perfect shape.

"She was pretty scared. She was flea infested. She had conjunctivitis pretty bad in one eye,"
