This cute cat was trapped in a car engine and had to be cut free after an eagle-eyed security guard spotted her.
The two-year-old's paw was seen poking out of a Blue Honda as the vehicle drove into the multi-storey car park where a security guard alerted the driver.
The moggy, covered in dirt and oil on being rescued, is believed to have travelled for around 10 minutes in the car engine from Shaftesbury Avenue in Feltham before she was discovered.
RSPCA animal welfare officer Jill Sanders was called in but unfortunately her plan to coax the cat out with smelly food didn't work and the moggy was rushed over to a local car garage.
Staff at Talha Motors in Staines Road jacked up the car and removed a few panels off the vehicle to free the feline.
Ms Sanders is urging anyone who recognises the cat to get in touch and thanked the garage for their help in the rescue mission.
She said: “The poor cat was initially stuck in the engine but then she’d moved and we just couldn’t reach her. I knew we needed to be able to get under the car to rescue her so I followed the car to Talha Motors garage nearby.
“They were really helpful and jacked up the car for us and lo and behold there was the cat! We had to take a few panels off the car but we did manage to get the cat out.
"She was covered in oil and very dirty. I thought she was a grey cat so I was surprised to find she was perfectly white once she had been cleaned up! Despite her ordeal she seemed okay which was a bit of a miracle really.
“We have no idea how long she had been inside the car. She could have been there all night and then the driver just set off in the morning to go shopping and didn’t realise the cat was there.
"She really is The Fast and the Furriest - her joyride lasted for about ten minutes before she was spotted.
“She must have been very scared when the car started to move and drive away with her still trapped inside!”
The cat was taken to RSPCA Putney Animal Hospital in London where she was assessed by a vet and given some much needed food and rest.
The vet found she had bilateral conjunctivitis and fleas.
Emma Spring, veterinary nurse at RSPCA Putney Animal Hospital, added: “When she was placed in the pen after her theatre check she ravenously devoured her food and then all she wanted to do was sleep.
"She must have been hungry and very tired after such an ordeal. She has also been sneezing a little bit so she’s been moved to an isolation unit but hopefully she will be okay.
“She is a friendly and chilled girl who loves a fuss. I think she is very happy to be rescued!
"Unfortunately, she has no microchip so we are unable to locate her owner but her details have been posted on Pets Located.”
