Kitten rescued after hitching ride with firefighter from Orlando to Clermont

CLERMONT, Fla. – A tiny stowaway is in good hands after hitching a ride with a firefighter from Orlando to Clermont.

Firefighter Robert Lovvorn pulled up to Clermont Station 3 Wednesday when his coworker Bubba said he thought he heard something.

After searching Lovvorn's truck, firefighters discovered a tiny 7-week-old Calico kitten.

It took crews 30 minutes to get the kitten out of the spare tire under the truck.

The firefighters fed the kitten some tuna and water with a syringe and gave the kitten a bath.

The crew named him Passion and he is now in a foster home thanks to The Animal League.
