Mechanic helps save family pet from car dashboard

WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - With the help of Eric Frazer of Frazer Auto, one Iowa Park resident was able to safely free her pet cat after it crawled into her car dashboard.

“I figured that she hid maybe under one of the seats in the back so I just drove home and when I got home I looked for her under the seats didn’t find her under any of the seats,” said Jaclynn Walker, owner of Pumpkin the kitten.

Walker says she believes the cat crawled into her dashboard when she left the car to get the kitten checked in for it’s vet appointment.

“My husband brought out a bag of cat food, we brought out a bag of chips to shake it to get her to come out but she didn’t.” said Walker.

After three hours of unsuccessful attempts to free the kitten herself and noticing the cat’s breathing was becoming labored, she began calling auto shops for help.

“So it actually went in through the dash through the driver’s side and wedged itself up behind the AC box. I don’t know how it got up that far,” said Frazer.

Without hesitation Frazer cleared his entire schedule for the day and spent five hours taking apart Walker’s car in order to save Pumpkin’s life.

“I felt obligated to do something about it and it was the right thing to do,” said Frazer.

Walker had been out of work for three weeks and says she is forever grateful for Frazer and his service.

Now Pumpkin is happy, healthy and managed to escape her adventure without even a scratch.
