A Florida man is being hailed as a hero for going above and beyond to save a distressed kitten -- even though it meant slicing a hole into the side of his vehicle.
Errand Frazier of Vero Beach had been out fishing late last month when he heard the faint sound of a kitten crying out. He recalled for a moment that he'd heard a cat in the woods near his house a few days earlier, but got in his truck and continued on his way.
After he arrived to his destination, Errand heard that same meowing there, too. That's when he decided to take a closer look, discovering that the sound was actually emanating from behind one of his truck's side panels. Not wanting to risk injuring the mysterious animal by yanking it out or risk having it fall on a drive to get help, Errand did something remarkable to make sure its predicament ended without delay.
"I had some sheet metal shears behind the seat of my truck, so I started cutting a hole and peeling back the metal. Sure enough, there was a kitten in there," he says. "I seen this little rascal peeking at me. I said, 'What in the world? You hitched a ride!'"
