The DSPCA is appealing for its owners to come forward

The DSPCA is searching for the owners of a kitten who managed to hitch a ride from Dublin to Offaly.

The 6 month old climbed into the engine of a car at the Dundrum Business Park near Bird Avenue on Wednesday and ended up over 124 kilometres away.

The cat is being returned to Dublin this weekend and will be in the care of the DSPCA in Rathfarnham.

The black and white kitten doesn't have a microchip and the DSPCA is appealing for anyone who's missing a cat to contact them.
