'Let Miaow-t' - Kitten Trapped Behind Dashboard
6:03am 27th June 2013
A Cornish kitten has survived by a whisker, after getting trapped behind a van dashboard for almost a week.
The driver took it to a garage in Roche after being driven mad by strange noises.
When mechanics stripped it back they found the tiny creature - now christened Dash.
David Hayes runs the workshop at Vospers. He said: "I couldn't hear anything to start with. We spent an hour stripping bits and bobs out of the vehicle. We were about to give up when we had a look in the dash and saw two little white ears poking up.
We coaxed him out and there he was - little Dash.
"No food, no water - barely alive. Very weak, could barely walk. We tried giving him some milk as soon as he came out and then took him straight to the vets who put him on fluids - so he's all happy now.
"We've had birds make nests in vehicles - but we've never found a live kitten."
The eight week old kitten had gone without food, water or sunshine for almost a week.
Dash is now recovering with vets who are trying to find him a permanent home.
