Cat-astrophe avoided: 70 miles under a truck
A cat named Bella was shaken up, but survived a 2 1/2-hour trip on a spare tire under her owner’s truck.
Gil Smith recently drove 70 miles from his home in Gilbert, Ariz., to a business meeting in Kearny. When he got out of the truck, he heard a cat in distress and realized it was his, according to an Associated Press report.
Smith said Bella apparently was smart enough to know not to jump off the tire as the truck was moving.
Smith, who has three indoor cats, three goats and three chickens, skipped the meeting and took Bella — this time in the truck’s cab — straight back home.
