SUGAR GROVE, Ill. (AP) — Kane County animal control authorities say a kitten is now up for adoption, almost three weeks after it survived a 300-mile journey inside a semitrailer’s air cleaner.

The black kitten is about four months old and has been named “EB,” short for “engine block.”

She was found late last month after a police officer pulled over the truck’s driver for talking on a cellphone. The Sugar Grove officer heard the cat’s meows and discovered the hitchhiking kitten clinging to the truck’s air cleaner with all four paws.

The kitten was treated for ear mites, but hasn’t shown any signs of hearing loss after spending time so close to the engine. The truck was traveling from Tomah, Wis.

Anyone interested in adopting the cat can call Kane County Animal Control.
