KINOULTON, England, May 27 (UPI) -- A British woman said she was driving around looking for her cat, which had been missing for two weeks, and found the kitty was hiding under the hood of her car.

Julie Tansley of Kinoulton, England, said Princess the cat was apparently under the hood of the car for two weeks before she noticed a dashboard warning light while out for a drive to search for the feline, The Mirror reported Monday.

Tansley said she lifted the hood to discover Princess was cowering near the engine and had apparently chewed through a coolant hose.

I have absolutely no idea how she managed to get there," Tansley said. "It's just ┬Čunbelievable -- I mean we've driven to and from school, work, even through the jet wash with her in there. If the warning light hadn't come on I dread to think what could have happened."

She said a mechanic friend spent 45 minutes dismantling the engine to free the cat, which was malnourished and covered in coolant fluid but otherwise uninjured.
