A Florida man was shocked recently to discover a small kitten trapped inside the body of his pickup truck. After he did his part to rescue it, people online raised money to help him have his truck repaired
Errand Frazier says his pickup truck was parked outside of his home last month when he suddenly heard a purring noise coming from inside. He decided to get some metal cutters to pull back the frame of the truck and look inside, and when he did, he was shocked to see a kitten trapped inside.
“I said, ‘Oh Lord, what am I going to do,’” said 50-year-old Frazier to CNN. “I seen this little rascal peeking at me. I said, ‘What in the world? You hitched a ride!’”
Frazier attempted to get the kitten out on his own, but when he quickly realized he couldn’t do it, he decided to seek help from the Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County.
“I said, ‘Ma’am, there’s a kitten that hitchhiked from my home and I can’t get it,’” said Frazier. “She said, ‘Man, you did a job on your truck.’”
Finally, the humane society got a few people together to rescue the kitten, and after some time, they were finally able to get it out. One week later, Frazier and the kitten reunited.
“It was almost telling me, ‘Thank you for saving my life,’” said Frazier.
The Humane Society went on to set up a fund to help Frazier pay for repairs for his truck, and after raising enough to cover the damages from the rescue, the extra funds are now going towards helping other animals.
