BATAVIA, N.Y. (WIVB) — As a deputy with the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call at the Genesee ARC, he was met by a tiny, furry “hitchhiker” looking for a ride.
Early Wednesday morning, Deputy Chris Parker noticed a little cat that had found himself a place to lay — underneath the deputy’s patrol car.
As Parker tried to lure the cat out from underneath the car, nothing worked, not even cat food.
The cat, who deputies believe was cold and scared, was carefully driven to the County Highway Department.
There, the car was placed on a lift, allowing workers to finally remove the cat.
The cat is now at the Genesee County animal shelter, “safe and sound,” according to deputies.
