A driver in Sacramento, California, had trouble getting his car started. He heard a funny noise coming from the engine and found a cat tangled in the motor belts.
Firefighters cut through the belts and were able to free the cat, which was severely injured with several deep cuts.
The cat was taken to the Sacramento Cat Hospital in Carmichael, where life-saving surgery was performed.
The cat, nicknamed Blaze, will be put up for adoption when she recovers in a couple of weeks. Link -via Fark

In these cold winter months, it's wise to bang on the hood of your car a couple of times before you start it. That should wake any unsuspecting stray cats who'd been huddling against the warmth of the engine.
