BALTIMORE — Courtney and Andrew Haller of Baltimore never thought they would return from their Outer Banks vacation with a new family member.

On their way home, they spotted a kitten on the side of the highway but when they pulled over it was nowhere to be found. It was not until the next day they heard meows for help.

The kitten jumped inside the wheel well of the Haller's vehicle and lodged its way inside the car's frame. With help from neighbors, the car was taken apart and the kitten was rescued. It survived the 7 hour trek from North Carolina to Maryland without a scratch.

Courtney and Andrew have named the kitten "Rider." They are thankful the kitten has come into their lives and plan on showering it with lots of love in the years to come.
