Going back a couple years for a throwback to a special visitor in the shop.
It’s a regular Saturday morning at work, when one of the techs finds some fur in the engine compartment of a car he just pulled in. It turned out to be a live cat that rode for 45 minutes next to the engine. Luckily it was on the far side of the car from where all the belts and pulleys are, which are what usually kill stowaway animals.
When they were able to get the cat out, the techs tried to put it in a box, but it escaped and hid under toolboxes and workbenches for an hour before finally letting us grab it. It ended up going home with the customer, even though it’s probably a stray.
