Tesla must really want their beautiful electric cars to purr. Literally.
Their rides are usually much quieter than their gasoline-powered counterparts because they do not need to create and contain mini explosions to move forward. You usually don’t hear much sound coming from the car whenever it’s electric, so a Tesla Model X owner became concerned when his crossover began making weird, cat-like noises while parked in his garage.
As it turns out, a kitten found its way behind the rear bumper and couldn’t find its way out. The owner couldn’t remove the bumper on his own, so he drove to the nearest service center and asked for help. When they cracked into the bumper, the kitten—who hadn’t seen daylight for up to 14 hours—was afraid to jump out on its own.
The technician had to reach in the car’s belly and pull the kitten out. The entire operation took less than a minute and was caught on video for everyone to see.
There is no word on exactly how the kitten wound up behind the bumper of a Tesla X. Regardless, this story has a happy ending. One of the technicians working at the service center immediately decided to give the cat a new home.
