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 canâ€™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,"
