Eclipse the cat took a 4-hour, 200-mile journey across Ohio under a car hood. The friendly, black and white cat was discovered after Wayne Polk, the owner of the Eclipse truck, pulled over to a rest stop. He smelled something funny coming from under his hood and when he investigated he found the feline.
The poor cat's fur was badly singed on his right side and he had burns. As reported by Mail Online, Eclipse was taken to the Cloverleaf Animal Hospital by the Medina SPCA and the vet, Dr. Linda Randall, said the cat was "going to be fine."
Today, the Medina SPCA gave an update about Eclipse on their Facebook page, "He finally ate food on his own this morning for the first time. He was scheduled to have surgery to clean up his wounds this afternoon. We're hoping that he'll be well enough to go home with our vet tech for the holiday week-end. He is a real trooper."
The Medina SPCA is trying to find his home.
Sending healing purrs to Eclipse.
