From the Santa Cruz Sentinel:

A kitten took a wild ride across the Golden Gate Bridge to Santa Cruz on Wednesday after it got stuck in a van’s engine compartment. The kitten made the 85-mile trip unharmed, according to Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter spokesman Todd Stosuy. Now, authorities are looking for its owner.
