A cat travelled long miles in 25-degree temperatures and 70 mph speeds ?then got a new family.
Milo, who has found a new home with the Lichtys in Tualatin, Ore., probably wasn’t expecting to take such a ride when he tucked into the spot above the spare tire underneath Lichty’s SUV in Olympia, Wash. — he was likely just looking for a warm place to hide away from the bitter cold.
Lichty, who was traveling back to Tualatin after a day’s work near Olympia, says he heard a meow when he pulled into a rest stop during his journey. He did a brief inspection, but didn’t see a cat, and kept on his route.
“When I left the rest stop and came into my town, I stopped at the store,” Lichty said. “He didn’t meow, so I kind of forgot about it until I got to my driveway, heard him meow again, and then I knew that, wow, I took this cat back.”
