Tesla mechanics rescue a cute kitten that got stuck inside a Model X bumper


Of all the things that could possibly go wrong with your electric self-driving car, finding a kitten inside your bumper may be the cutest of them all.

An unnamed Model X owner uploaded two clips to YouTube on Saturday that show a teeny kitten trapped inside the bumper of his vehicle.

"So this morning, I heard a meow in my garage," the man said in the clip. "And we don't have a cat."

After narrowing down the meows to his vehicle, then the rear bumper, the man decided to bring his car into a Tesla service center to get a little help rescuing the cat safely.

The technicians were able to remove a small panel from underneath the rear bumper, and after a little coaxing, the very upset orange baby kitten was safely removed. 

Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk tweeted the two clips on Saturday, which is not an unusual move. Musk frequently tweets stories that paint the Telsa community in a good light.
