A pickup truck belonging to a Boca Raton Police officer really purred.
That's because a tiny kitten took refuge next to the spare tire compartment in the undercarriage of the F-250 pickup.
Officer Bart Gallett heard the kitten meow. Partner CSO Ganthier looked under the truck and heard the same sounds. Some workers at the fleet maintenance facility offered their help and found the hidden kitten.
Officers took the kitten to the Calusa Veterinary Center to be checked out. The 16-month-old kitty did not have a microchip. A police officer recruit is now taking care of it.
