    A stowaway kitten has been rescued from under a car bonnet after travelling 230 miles from south Wales to Leeds.

    The six-week-old moggie, named Tom after Welsh singer Tom Jones, was discovered trapped in the car engine by the driver after they heard "a strange noise" on 12 August, the RSPCA said.

    Animal rescue officer Rebecca Goulding said he was able to be freed without the kitten being seriously injured.

    Quote Message: He was absolutely covered in grease but thankfully had no injuries so he’s a very lucky cat. The caller explained that they’d heard a strange noise all the way from Wales and had assumed it was something wrong with the engine. That means the kitten must have been stuck there for about four hours. He’s so lucky to have not been burnt or injured. He’s definitely used up one of his nine lives on the trip!” from Rebecca Goulding RSPCA

    Ms Goulding says the black and white feline is being cared for at the RSPCA's shelter in Halifax where Tom is "doing very well".
