Two Port Authority Police Officers and an airport worker offered to help and located the kitten’s whereabouts inside the taxi’s engine compartment.

It was determined the only way to access the kitten was by unhinging the driver’s door.

They were eventually able to get a hold of the kitten and rescue it.

Following the feline’s rescue, the airport worker decided to take the kitten home and adopt it.
