SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) -

A kitten rescued from the underside of a news vehicle has recovered and is available for adoption.

"News Cat" was found wedged on top of the gas tank of a news vehicle in Salisbury last Tuesday.

The Ford Explorer was being driven down the road when an animal-like noise was heard in the SUV.

A stop at Jerry's Shell gas station helped pinpoint the problem when the kitten was found wedged in.

After a short while, employee Joe Bost was able to rescue the kitten and put the kitten in an old headlight box.

"News Cat" was taken to a veterinarian office in Salisbury to be checked out.

The kitten was found to have a slight infection, but has been treated and is fully recovered. 

She's now up for adoption at the Rowan County Animal Control Office in Salisbury, where she has a new name of "Sunflower."

She's approximately two months old and a Calico kitten. 

If you'd like to adopt her, call the Animal Control office at 704.216.7768 and given them ID number 56536. 

The adoption fee has been paid and the cat can go free to a qualified owner through the shelter.
