QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (AP) — A cat named Gumbo is doing fine after stowing away in a minivan’s engine compartment during a New York City family’s upstate getaway.

The head of the Warren County SPCA tells The Post-Star of Glens Falls ( ) the family discovered the cat after arriving at The Great Escape Lodge in Queensbury Monday night.

The 10-year-old tabby was removed from under the engine hoses after surviving the 225-mile journey on a cold, snowy night virtually unscathed.

After the SPCA posted the story on Facebook, a New York City man identified the cat as his. Gumbo is believed to have escaped from a cat carrier in Brooklyn’s Manhattan Beach section during a trip to the vet on Jan. 14.

The owners were headed upstate later Friday to retrieve their pet.
