A kitten climbed inside the bumper of a Royal Navy pilot’s car and made it a full 300 miles before being discovered.
Lt Nick Grimmer told the BBC, he heard the kitten meowing a day after traveling from Birmingham to the Royal Naval Air Station in Culdrose. To his dismay, he and colleagues had to dismantle parts of the car to rescue the kitten hiding inside the bumper of his BMW. The adorable, tiny kitten has since been named Tigger by the pilot’s colleagues.
Grimmer said he thinks the cat climbed inside the bumper when the car was parked at the Birmingham Airport for several days. He said the kitten was unharmed by the rough journey and has even been named the star of the military calendar. The 2017 Flying Tigers and Kittens calendar was produced by 814 Naval Air Squadron, Merlin Force and supporting teams at Royal Navy Air Station Culdrose. All proceeds go to charity and hopefully all kittens stay far away from bumpers.
All attempts to find the kittens led to dead ends so Lt Grimmer had no other options but to adopt the adorable kitten as his own. We feel he made the right choice.
