First published in News

A KITTEN has lost its fight for life after spending two days inside a car engine. The ginger-white fluffball, nicknamed Brolga, rode around in the engine compartment as the driver tried to work out what the noise was.

When the young man from Skipton eventually realised, he called firefighters to free the traumatised animal.

The driver believes the six-week-old kitten was a stray he had spotted in Malham.

Chris Rawnsley, of Keighley Cat Care, said: “The vets did all they could, but sadly he did not make it.”

Over 100,000 children go missing in the UK each year and not a word in the media about it. A poor kitten suffers and dies and makes the local paper. Humanity is dead alright
