When a customer came to complain about “squeaking coming from the back of his car,” they discovered not just one but two tiny kittens in the spare tire.

“The guy was [around] 70. He had a Ford Explorer and the spare is under the vehicle… It started squeaking when he was on the road,” wrote the person who saved the kitten via reddit.

“(The kitten) couldn’t have been more than a couple weeks old, could barely open its eyes…. They were fine, hot and thirsty but they were ok.” They helped clean the kittens and kept them warm in a box covered with rags. The kittens were given a lot of love and a second chance at life.

“They are together and have a good home. It’s been 3 weeks since I have them to my cousin, so maybe a month and a half to two months old [now],” he wrote on reddit.
