kitten had endured over 300 miles under a hot car engine from Louisiana to Texas

LuLu had endured over 300 miles under a hot car engine and through many stops and two states. This very adventurous cat found a home with the Shutts family in Wylie.

While she was driving she started hearing strange sounds but, at first, didn’t think anything of it.

“We keep hearing meowing outside and we’re trying to find it,” said Chris Shutts. Chris’ wife and children noticed it while sitting in their home office. They ultimately tracked the noise and realized it was coming from inside Carolyn’s red Honda.

What they’d find curled up inside the low-hanging engine splash shield of Carolyn’s car was an 8-week-old gray and white kitten. It took several attempts to get the kitten out of the car.

After an exchange of calls and texts and pictures it was confirmed: the tiny cute gray and white kitten belonged to Carolyn’s friend back in Monroe, Louisiana and now she’s in Wylie, Texas.

“The kitten was the under the car the entire time, it’s just a crazy story,” said Chris.

“I go ‘my daughter as soon as she sees this kitten is going to be in love with it,’” Shutts recalled telling Carolyn at the time. The family ended up naming her LuLu or Lucky Louis – the lucky cat from Louisiana.

LuLu getting here was already a miracle. After speaking with a veterinarian Chris says the fact that she had only one small burn likely from the hot car engine is a miracle, too.

LuLu is very playful. She loves an adventure but nothing may top what she’s just been on. 🙂
