Over the weekend, YouTube user S U faced a problem that (presumably) no human being has dealt with before: a cat was stuck inside his Tesla. He heard a cat meowing and traced the sound back to his car. What made this situation extra weird? He didn't have a cat.
So he posted a video asking for help:
Fortunately, he was able to bring his Tesla Model X into a service station after what I assume was a very strange call. They were successfully able to get the stray cat out. But she did not want to leave.
The car's owner named the kitten Tessie and she is doing much better now. They gave her a some water, and eventually one of the rescuers was able to find her a new home. In a third video, "S U" said, "Her weekend obviously had a rough start but she probably had the best end of the weekend ever."
Tessie has been getting a lot of attention online. Even Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk was talking about her.
And the rest of the internet followed suit.
U didn’t rescue that kitten , u took it away from the only thing that it loved ❤️!— Dean Dcruz (@DeanDcruz) June 17, 2017
Will all Model 3's come with cute kittens in the bumper too? Personally, I'd prefer a cute puppy. Is that on the option list?— [POPCORN] Satϕshi (@sovereignmonkey) June 17, 2017
As cute as this is, let's just hope that Tessie learns to stay away from cars from here on out.
