Austin firefighters on Monday became heroes to the owners of Jake the cat after the clever feline managed to lock himself inside their car.
So, how did this happen? Is Jake some sort of cat genius? Is Jake a long lost relative of Toonces the driving cat?
Thankfully, Austin Fire Department was there with the answers to these hard questions via a Facebook post.
First of all, Jake is apparently pretty cool. Second, the cat hopped in the car while its owners unloaded groceries. Finally, somewhere in the course of these events, Jake hit the car’s lock button and the cat’s owners closed the doors without knowing their feline was inside.
For now, Jake’s lineage remains a mystery.
