SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) — A Spartanburg police officer rescued a kitten stuck beneath the hood of a car. 

Now the kitten, named Priscilla following her rescue, is safe at the shelter.

A police report says an employee at Priscilla McCall’s on N. Pine Street told officers Sunday that she thought a cat was stuck inside her vehicle. 

Police found the hesitant kitten and tried to lure it out with a feather duster. 

“Officer Russo was able to slide her arm down inside the car and find the cat. She immediately started to love on her hand and after a little bit of maneuvering she was able to grab her scruff and pull her out,” Spartanburg Police Department said in a Facebook post.

The friendly kitty was taken to Spartanburg Humane Society (SHS).

Angel Cox, CEO of SHS, said Priscilla is OK. 

A veterinarian will check the kitten again Tuesday. As of Tuesday morning, no owner has come forward.

Cox said rescues are held for five days for owners to claim them. If no one claims her, she will be placed up for adoption.
