FREDERICKTOWN, Mo., Jan. 14 (UPI) -- A Missouri family said their 9-month-old cat survived a 36-mile trip on the engine of a truck with only a few minor scratches.

Johnathan Widdows of Fredericktown said he picked up his son from the boy's grandmother's house Sunday morning and when they arrived home, his son heard a faint cry coming from under the hood, KSDK-TV, St. Louis, reported Monday.

Widdows said he opened the hood and discovered the family's cat, Nyan, trembling on top of the engine.

Nyan, who had only minor injuries, appeared to have recovered from the stress of her ordeal a few hours later and was back to acting normally, Widdows said.
