Cat Survives 10-Mile Trip on Top of Car

INKOM, Idaho (AP) - Torri Hutchinson's cat might just have one less life to live. Hutchison was driving along Interstate 15 one day recently when a motorist kept trying to get her attention and pointing to the roof of her car.

She said she was wary of the man, but wondered if perhaps her ski rack might have come loose.

She pulled over to the side, but kept her doors locked and the motor running.

The man pulled up behind her. Hutchinson rolled down her window to hear the man frantically shouting, "Your cat! Your cat!"

He reached for the roof of her car and handed the shocked Hutchinson her orange tabby.

She had driven about 10 miles with the cat on top of the car, and didn't even notice the feline when she stopped for gas.

Hutchinson said Cuddle Bug, or C.B. for short, had climbed into the back of her car as she was getting ready to leave. She put him out, but he must have jumped on the roof while she wasn't looking, she said.


  • This story reminds me of many many years ago when on a trip from GA to IN to visit my sister and her family. When my brother drives, well, we stop for gas and thats IT. Anyway, being almost 3/4 of the way there, we stopped for gas. We was in a full size pick-up with a camper shell. Opened the back and there was one of our cats sitting back there with a look of shock on his little face. Must say, for a barn yard cat, he was very well behaved. Did not get into any of the food items that was in the back and used a temporary litter pan we made for him during stops. BTW, when we got home, I swear that cat kissed the ground when we let him out of the back.
