Four Car Technicians Save the Life of a Trapped Cat

MAYS LANDING, N.J. -

Four car technicians have been credited for saving the life of a cat who got himself in a very unfavorable predicament.

The outdoor cat, Stephen, found himself stuck in his owner's car bumper. Frantic and unable to free him, Stephen's owner took her car to Kneble's Auto Service Center in Mays Landing, last Tuesday.

That's when Kenny Kneble, Ryan Duffield, Aaron Ripley, and Matt Mangini came in for the rescue. They said the rescue nearly took the whole day, but was well worth it since Stephen is now safe and sound.

Cats and other small animals often seek shelter and warmth by climbing into or underneath vehicles when it's cold out.

Workers at the auto service center warn motorists to knock on the hood or beep the horn before driving away to avoid scenarios similar to what happened to poor Stephen.
