Pennzoil is a 6 year old orange tabby. I was closing at work one day when a woman came inside the office and told me that the car she parked next to sounded like it had a kitten stuck in it. The car had been left in our parking lot for several days, with no signs of the owner. Myself and a few other ladies from the office went outside to take a look. I got down on the ground and looked under the car. That was when I saw his little orange tail up in the engine. After about an hour of trying to get him out, we called animal services to see if they could do anything, but it was going to be several hours until they arrived. A police officer showed up to try and jimmy the door so we could pop the hood, but with no luck. Finally, with the help of a can of cat food someone had brought, and a whole lot of tugging, we were able to free the tiny, grease covered kitten from the engine(thus the name "Pennzoil" came about). I brought him home that night, called to make an appointment for him at the vet, gave him a warm bath, and a mound of food which he devoured. He was severely malnourished, weighing in at 0.7 lb and was an estimated 4 weeks old. He had pink eye in both his eyes, an upper respiratory infection, ear mites, fleas, and ring worm. Despite his pitiful appearance, I fell in love with him. I just couldn't bring myself to give him away as planned.
Today Pennzoil is happy and healthy. He spends most of his time playing with his little brother "Ashes", and exploring all the cabinets he can reach. He loves playing with shopping bags. When we go grocery shopping, it turns into romper room! He loves to eat, and will eat just about anything, though cheese, potato chips, and ice cream seem to be his favorites. He still loves to get his warm baths and will even join me in the shower on occasion. Unlike most cats, Pennzoil will greet you at the door when you get home, much like a dog does. He loves meeting new people. Whenever he gets to meet a "stranger", he will jump up in their lap and stick his little nose right in their face. He is absolutely fearless! I can honestly say that I have never met a cat quite like Pennzoil. He has brought me so much happiness, and given me memories to last a lifetime.
