Some mischievous pit bulls did quite a number on their owner's car while trying to get to a small kitten who happen to be hiding in the vehicle's bumper.
The dogs' owner noticed the damage to the vehicle before heading out to work, knowing the canine's were after some sort of animal the night before. He drove from his residence in Banning to his workplace in Palm Springs, some 20 miles away, before he noticed there was actually a kitten stuck inside the hollow area of the bumper of the car.
The Palm Springs Police Department responded to the man's call and worked to rescue the young feline from the vehicle, which suffered extensive damage to the bumper and tires from the dogs' attempts to get to the cat.
The kitten was successfully rescued with help from an Animal Control Officer after approximately 40 minutes. The kitten was subsequently taken to a nearby animal hospital and was determined to be in good health.
She has since been named "Fender-Lynx." "Fender," for area where she was rescued from and "Lynx" based on the Lynx-like appearance of the tufts on her ear tips.
