The Scottish SPCA is seeking the owner of a cat who survived a six mile journey sitting on a van engine.
We were alerted on Tuesday morning (23 October) when a man discovered the injured female Persian cat under his bonnet after he noticed a burning smell.
The man began his journey just off London Road in Edinburgh and it is believed the cat, who has been nicknamed Penelope, may have recently gone missing from her home in the area.
Animal Rescue Officer Steph Grant said, "Penelope has sustained burns to the pads on her feet and part of her coat is singed.
"She also has a fractured jaw and cut under her chin as well as a missing tooth, so we think she may have fallen from a height and hit her face on the ground shortly before climbing inside the engine.
"Penelope is receiving antibiotics for her burns and has had her jaw wired. She's doing well and has proven to be very friendly and good natured.
"It could be that Penelope is a house cat and isn't used to being outdoors so she went inside the engine for warmth and shelter.
"She's quite a distinctive girl so we're hoping someone will recognise her and come forward.
"Penelope's owner must be very worried and we'd love to return her home after her frightening ordeal."
Anyone who recognises Penelope is being asked to call our Animal Helpline on 03000 999 999.
