Blue Monday - Purring Blue Truck

Hello! Welcome to Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Sometimes, it SEEMS as if Mr. Linky is not working, but I've discovered that if more than one person is linking in at the same time, it kinda slows down. So, if things seem to jam when you are linking in, just keep trying, and you'll meet with success.

Please leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments. If it's too much for one day, come back later in the week. Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today my Blue comes from CNN who reported that a Florida man with a Blue truck cut open his truck to track down a purring sound. (I copied these pictures from CNN. I did nothing to change the color.)





Errand Frazier of Vero Beach heard the purring sound, and investigated by setting up a camera and leaving some food over night. Somehow, the food was consumed, but the camera failed to record the meal.

So Frazier cut open his Blue truck! "I seen this little rascal peeking at me," Frazier recalled. "I said, 'What in the world? You hitched a ride!'"

He had no luck getting the kitten out. He drove to the Humane Society where it took three workers to extract the kitten!



The kitten has been adopted and is living happily ever after. The full story can be found here.


Note, please that Mr. Frazier is wearing a Blue shirt!


Happy Blue Monday!

Interesting story, I have to think there could have been another way to get the kitten out, but cute little kitten.

Maria Gagliano said...

Looks like the kitten found his home sweet home in the truck. :-)

Leovi said...

A story in very nice blue and with a happy ending!

Rhonda Albom said...

That truck is quite blue. We had a kitty get trapped under our house once, for about a day we could hear it before we figured it out and re-opened up the hole that had been closed. Out came kitty and ran off.

Any truck that purrs is a delight, but especially one that's blue!

Laurie Ritchey said...

Thanks for hosting, Sally.

LV said...

No dumb cat. He found him a nice blue home and fought to keep it. At least, the truck owner had compassion enough to help it.

evasmoodboard said...

very nice of Mr. Frazier, happy Monday :)

bj said...

Lucky cat for choosing the right vehicle to crawl into. So glad the man was a sweet, caring one.

Awww I do like a happy ending! But his poor truck :(

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I'm so glad there was a happy ending to the kitten being found and adopted. Sadly I've heard to cats being killed because they crawl inside cars and trucks seeking warmth and shelter. I've heard it is good to bang on the hood before starting one's car if you think a cat might have taken shelter in you car.

Happy Blue Mionday, Sally--better late than never ;)

Joy H said...

Love kitties and happy endings!
Happy Blue Monday. I hope my post shows up...lol

Awwww...this story melted my heart! I would love to start each and everyday reading or hearing this kind of news. What a really nice man.

Thanks for your visit! I'd love to try pizza everywhere in Chicago, it's all different. This crust was dense but had a crumbly texture almost like a crouton. SO good! :)

XO,
Jane
