Cat found in car engine

Suffolk police saved Buddy the cat after he escaped from his North Babylon home and got stuck in the engine of a neighbor's car. Videojournalist: James Carbone (May 6, 2013) 

A North Babylon man called Suffolk County police on May 6 after he heard a different kind of purring from under his Hyundai Elantra's hood. His neighbor's cat was inside. While officers tried to free the feline, named Buddy, by removing one of the car’s front tires, the cat slipped out on its own on the other side and dashed toward its house. That's when one of the cops scooped it into a pet carrier. Although shaken at first, 20 minutes later Buddy was fine, sleeping on a couch inside its home. | <a href=Here's the story" style="display:none" /> Here's the story" />
