PRLog - Jun. 19, 2014 - SHERWOOD, OR (June 19, 2014) – An eight-week old kitten has become quite the little traveler after being found in a car engine compartment in southwest Portland last week.

The kitten, named Lil’ Motor, was taken to DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital at just before midnight on June 12 after a good Samaritan found him in a car engine compartment. Though his gray and white fur was dirty with motor oil, a veterinary examination revealed no wounds or other issues, and he was eating and drinking on his own. Although Lil’ Motor was a bit timid, the final diagnosis on his record reads:  “healthy kitten”.

Because Lil’ Motor had no microchip or collar for identification, he was transferred to Multnomah County Animal Services (MCAS) on June 13 for the opportunity to be reclaimed or adopted. At MCAS, this two-pound ball of fur received preventative veterinary care, including a deworming and flea treatment, as well as his first vaccine.

The spring and summer months are some of the busiest for animal shelters as kitten season begins. Already very full with cats and kittens looking for homes, MCAS reached out to the Cat Adoption Team (CAT) for help. On June 18, Lil’ Motor took one more trip from MCAS to CAT where he was made available for adoption and found a new family within hours. He will take a final trip home in a few days after his neuter surgery is completed.

“He’s a very sweet little boy,” says Kristi Brooks, CAT Operations Manager, “I’m not surprised someone scooped him up so quickly.”

Many other kittens and cats are available through CAT’s adoption program. CAT will host it’s largest kitten adoption event of the year, Kitten Palooza at the Sherwood shelter location on June 28 from 10 a.m. to 6 .m. CAT is located at 14175 SW Galbreath Dr., Sherwood, Ore. Shelter hours are Tuesday-Friday, 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday-Sunday, 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. Adoptions are completed on a first come, first served basis.
