'Commodore purrs like a Kitten'

Posted by: 3AW Radio | 11 May, 2012 - 2:40 PM

A man who was experiencing a 'cat-like' noise coming from the rear of his new V8 Commodore took his car back to the dealership to have it inspected.

When the car was lifted onto the hoist and the exhaust was removed, a tabby kitten was found to be trapped between the heat shield and the body of the car.

The kitten fainted when it was removed but awoke shortly after with no injuries.

"It gives new meaning to your new Commodore will purr like a kitten," the mechanic joked with Ross and John. 

Listen to the rumour file mechanic who removed the Cat and view the adorable photos he took before and after the rescue.
