Firefighters from Kington, vet Wendy Phillips and veterinary nurse Emma-Lou Amps from Arrowfield Vet Practice were called to the rescue on August 2, after the driver heard a cat crying for help beneath the bonnet.

Snowy was extracted from the engine bay of the car and whisked to the vet surgery, where he received treatment for shock and an X-ray to diagnose the extent of the damage caused by his ordeal.

The images confirmed Snowy had suffered a very badly broken back leg, which had to be amputated, and he is now recovering.

The team at Arrowfield in Kington said: "We are pleased to report Snowy is doing incredibly well and we are all smitten with this lucky little fighter."
