    Cute story!

    According to the linked article, he had already driven around some thinking the cat left and it was doing ok. At that point, I would imagine it eased his mind some to drive it to the Service Center for the rescue. Though yes, that would still make me feel a bit unnerving driving around with the kitty there.

    Wait, wait.... there's a anti-Tesla blogger out there, right now, composing the breaking news that the Tesla is, in fact, NOT an electric car at all, but Elon Musk has a GigaKittenFactory in New Jersey, harnessing kitten power. PETA is now making up a PSA to encourage all states to ban sales of Tesla's, and stop this horrific abuse of feral kittens.:wink:

    One feral kitten - must be the 'single' motor model of Model S. :biggrin:

    You Model S owners just HAD to trump the Roadster owners by getting a cat IN the motor. #ShowOffsNeverDoWellInLife

    Cats on my Roadster!
