TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa firefighters have returned a cat to its owner after it hitched a ride in a car for about 100 miles.
Officials said they were called to rescue a cat, but quickly learned it wasn't "your typical cat stuck in a tree call."
They believe the cat jumped into the car's undercarriage in Mustang, Oklahoma, and likely road along near the engine. The driver said he heard a noise that he thought was his child's video game, but turned out to be the meowing cat.
Firefighters made calls to the Mustang area to see if anyone had reported a lost cat and eventually found the family. They drove up to Tulsa Friday to collect the cat, whose name is Snickers.
