A New Jersey mechanic has a new pet after he helped rescue a kitten that was trapped inside a customer’s car.

Kyle Fitzgerald says that a customer came in to Paul’s Garage in Scotch Plains and said that he heard meowing coming from somewhere inside the car. The mechanic jumped in to action and found a 7-week-old kitten inside.

“I was able to pull her out and get her into my arms and that was the happiest part,” says Fitzgerald. “Now there’s a new member of the family.”
