Seems like cats love to sit outside of the car and enjoy the scenery while driving.

A woman said that a 6-week-old cat hitchhiked on the outside of her vehicle while driving about 100 miles of roads in upstate New York.

Stacey Pulsifer said that she recently drove from her home in Plattsburgh, Elizabethtown, in the Adirondacks, then back to her apartment. On the way, she stopped for coffee and heard meowing from her Jeep.

She asked two friends to help her search the vehicle. She finally found the kitten stuck behind a bumper and she had to cut it off.

Pulsifer has since adopted the hitchhiking cat and named it Pumpkin.

It is estimated that the lucky black cat was lodged in the car for about 22 hours and traveled about 100 miles.

The cat suffered a broken leg from the ride.

“It is really amazing that the cat stayed alive after being driven outside at high speed,” a cat expert said.
