A cat trapped for 3 miles in a car engine is recovering after receiving more than 100 stitches at a veterinary hospital in Manchester, N.H. The cat, named Tommy by Manchester Animal Shelter volunteers, suffered third-degree burns last weekend. Several people attempted to pull him out after the driver heard the animal screaming. Three firefighters freed him; he was wedged in between a strut and the hot metal of the engine. Tommy underwent 90 minutes of surgery at the Veterinary Emergency Clinic of Manchester. No one has come forward to claim the cat, who is now under the care of the shelter.
