Kitten Mysteries and a Car Talk Question


It was 3:30 in the morning, and I was standing in the knee high grass in the yard of a deserted neighborhood house listening for a kitten. The whole adventure started 8 hours earlier, when I got home and discovered a couple of notes on our car, telling us not to start it up becuase there was a kitten caught underneath the engine. We had borrowed the car from a dealership. So it took me a good 15 minutes to figure out how to open the hood and see that, sure enough, there was a kitten looking up at me.

Now here’s where things get a little odd and where I wonder what you think. We thought the kitten belonged to a mother who had had a litter recently. So after catching him, we took him across the street to the deserted neighbors house, let him go, and expected the mother to run up to him when she heard his cries. She did, but then she promptly turned back around. After a quick discussion, my husband and I realized we had each thought that the other had seen this kitten with the litter, but we weren’t right.

Thus the kitten chase that ended at 3:30. So…could the cat actually have been in the car at the dealership, which is two hours away?
