A lesson for sleepy cats: don't fall asleep on the fuel tank of a westward-bound coach bus. A stowaway tabby was discovered at the Bristol bus station in England, after seemingly falling asleep on part of the bus's warm undercarriage 100 miles away. Andy Muskett, the bus driver, only discovered the little cat while he was unloading passengers' luggage after a four-hour-long trip across the English southwest.
"I heard a strange noise that was definitely not mechanical and realised that as only one thing meows we probably had a cat incident," Muskett told the BBC. "It was still a bit of a shock to find a silver tabby cat sitting on the fuel tank. When we got him down he was actually pretty contented."
The cat -- who has since been named Diesel by the bus crew -- suffered minor burns, for which he is currently being treated. The RSPCA, which has taken custody of Diesel as they search for his owner, reported that the cat is recovering well at their facility in Bristol.
