Woman allows car to be destroyed to rescue kitten
Kitten was named 'Monte' in tribute to car
A kitten was saved by chainsaw-wielding mechanics after it had crawled into a woman's car dashboard and wouldn't come out.
UPI reports Denise Wilford-Neal of Vero Beach tried getting her newly adopted kitten to come out of the dash by enticing it with food and water. When the cat wouldn't emerge, Wilford-Neal lobbied for help via Facebook.
"I was worried about the heat of the day, so I put a post on Facebook, 'Does anyone have suggestions,' and then it went crazy. People were calling and coming by with tools and mechanics came."
An attempt to take apart the dash proved unsuccessful, so Wilford-Neal gave the mechanics the green light to saw through the dash even though it would ruin her 1995 Monte Carlo.
After being freed, Wilford-Neal named the kitten "Monte" in tribute to her destroyed car, but says the kitten is doing well.
