A poor little kitten in Banning managed to escape from four pit bulls who were after her by hiding in a van's engine (you can see just how badly they wanted to get her by checking out the van's damage). But that wasn't the end of the journey for her.

The kitten went along for a 25-mile ride to Palm Springs before she was discovered, according to the Desert Sun.

Getting her out was a chore: it took 40 minutes and the van's bumper had to be removed. The kitten is 7 weeks old, in good health and has been named "Fender-Linx." You can adopt her for $20 at the Palm Springs Animal Shelter.
