Garfield looked quite the sight when he popped out of a car engine as a mechanic opened the hood to the vehicle at a Winnipeg, MB service station one day last month.

No one knew there was a stowaway on board the car, which was brought to Winnipeg Super Lube for servicing, and employees were surprised to see the cat.

SuperLube manager John Meadows spoke with CBC News and said it’s not uncommon for cats to be found inside of cars, but they rarely turn up at the garage.

“It happens, even in the city,” he was quoted saying. “They get cold. They feel something warm, and they go and crawl into it. You go home, and guess what? You’ve got a new cat.”

The oil covered cat was taken to the Winnipeg Humane Society and given a bath, after which he was a handsome orange tabby once more.

WHS gave Garfield his name, helped him recover from his ordeal, and prepared him for adoption.

530fc6999d0d5Garfield’s adoption listing states: ‘Classic name for a classic cat like myself: Garfield! What you should know is that I am a lovely, gentle boy who would make a wonderful companion. I am very friendly and curious, and I’m not shy when it comes to giving purrs and headbutts. I’ll wait patiently for some chin scratches and head rubs, any day. So why don’t you take a few minutes to get to know me and see what a big difference I could make in your life?”
