LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) - A kitten trapped inside of a vehicle was rescued by deputies after a driver informed authorities that he heard a kitten meow when the car was being driven.

It's hot enough in the Midlands right now, but imagine being a tiny animal trapped against a hot engine block.

Deputies responded to the driver and, using a jack and "purrsuation," were able to get the kitten out of the vehicle.

HEAT ALERT: THE HEAT INDEX IN THE MIDLANDS IS EXPECTED TO EXCEED 100 DEGREES. KEEP PETS OUT OF DIRECT SUNLIGHT AND HOT AREAS AND ALWAYS PROVIDE ACCESS TO CLEAN, FRESH WATER. 

The kitten is safe and is up for adoption, according to LCSD.
