VIENNA - This little kitty went home - but only after Vienna police and firefighters partially dismantled a police car to find it.
The naughty feline first woke residents of a Vienna neighborhood with its desperate meowing, then kept police and firefighters busy for much of the night.
She was found under the hood of a car but eluded her rescuers' grasp. The kitten took cover under several other cars before seemingly disappearing — except for her meow.
Firefighters and police finally struck paydirt after jacking up a police cruiser, then following the sound and tracing the wayward kitty to a small space inside the vehicle's floor panel. But it took half an hour of elbow grease before the critter was nabbed and taken to an animal shelter.
Never miss a local story.
But not before having the last meow.
"It bit my finger!" said firefighter Franz Zehetmeier, who finally collared the cat.
