LAKELAND, Fla. – A local kitten had a happy ending after going on a wild ride!

The cat, named Bryson, got stuck in the wheel well of a car and stayed there as the car traveled nearly 5 miles.

The driver was unaware that the kitten was in his wheel during the drive, but after spotting the cat, he quickly called for help. 

A Lakeland firefighter pulled the little guy from the wheel well.  Authorities report that Bryson is doing fine. 

He is now at the SPCA in Lakeland waiting for a loving family to take him home.
