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.MORE NEWS: Intel to Build $20 Billion Fabrication Facility in Midwest to Ease Chip Shortage
