This 7-month-old kitten was named “Fender-Lynx” after it survived a pit bull attack and a 25-mile car ride and was found inside the fender of a Dodge minivan.


Four pit bulls demolished the bumper of a vehicle while attempting to find a kitten that had hidden inside.

The mini van survived the attack, but lost a good portion of its front bumper and ended up with a flattened tire from the incident.

The owner of the dogs, who also owned the vehicle, said the animals had gotten a scent of a kitten that was stuck beneath the front bumper of the mini van, reports NBC Los Angeles.

The dogs’ attempt to get the kitten out from under the bumper resulted in massive amounts of damage to the vehicle.

The kitten was safe, however, as it had moved to a different portion of the bumper prior to the worst part of the attack.

Now named “Fender Lynx,” the cat actually rode inside the vehicle’s bumper as the car owner drove to work before it was rescued by authorities. The seven week old kitten was taken to the Palm Springs Animal Shelter where it is now available for pre-adoption for a fee of $20. To contact the shelter, call 760-416-5718.
