A CAT who went missing after crawling inside two car engines is home safe and sound after his mini adventure.

Ginger cat Harry went missing on March 27 from his home in Great Harwood after the feline managed to get into owner Tracy Wilson's car engine. 

After dropping out of the car while Mrs Wilson sat in traffic, Harry ran to another car and climbed in another engine.

RSPCA inspector Natalie Taylor was called to a house four miles away in Whalley, where a cat was reported to be stuck in a car engine.

Lancaster And Morecambe Citizen:

Cheeky Harry hopped inside his owner’s car engine before switching to another car engine in a traffic jam 

She said: “The car had been sat on their drive for a week and the owners said they became concerned when they heard crying from inside.

“When I arrived, I found the cat wedged inside the engine. He was trying to push himself out of a very small gap in the wheel arch but was stuck fast.

“I managed to scan him for a microchip and contact his owners who rushed straight down to us to help me free the frightened puss.”

Harry, a 10-year-old rescue cat, usually lives indoors and his owners were very worried when he disappeared.

His owner, Ms Wilson said: “We got Harry in December 2015. He’d been found living stray in the KFC car park in Accrington and I took him on. He has always been a house cat and very rarely wants to go out.

“Harry was found in Mitton Road, Whalley, which is more than four miles from our home. I drive along this road every day on my way to work.

“I believe he’d been hiding in my car engine and then fell out while I was sat in traffic on Mitton Road that day.”

Harry is said to be on the mend and has since started climbing over the furniture again. Mrs Wilson and her daughter thanked the RSPCA and the car owners that found him for their great work.
