Based on the kitten’s condition, veterinarians suspect that it might have stowed away in a car engine compartment and then fallen out.

Since no one has claimed Courtney, the kitten can be adopted at PHS/SPCA’s Center for Compassion, 1450 Rollins Road in Burlingame. Courtney is now spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. The adoption fee is $120.

“Courtney is a charming and friendly kitten and would make the perfect addition to someone looking to add a feline to their home,” said shelter spokeswoman Buffy Martin Tarbox.
