We've received word that Honda the kitten, who was rescued after being found trying to keep warm under the hood of a car in Boston earlier this month, has found his forever home.

According to the Northeast Animal Shelter, Randy Todd and his friend heard kitten cries in a Boston parking garage and eventually narrowed it down to one car - a Honda CRV. 

They started searching under the car but couldn't find the kitty. Convinced that there was a kitten in distress, they went into the building and found the owner of the car. 

She came down, popped the hood and there - sitting on the engine block - was Honda!

By Thursday morning, Honda was happy to be safe and warm at the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem. 

"We are so grateful to Randy, his friend, and the cars owner for making the extra effort to save a life," Laurie McCannon said.

This is an important lesson to car owners to make the effort to bang on the hoods of their cars before starting it up especially this time of year.

Cats are seeking the warmth under the hood and may not make any noise for you to know they are there.
