Council staff are appealing for the owners of a black kitten to come forward - after it hitched a lift on one of their vans.
The kitten was found cowering under the wheel-arch of the vehicle by horticultural workers at South Somerset District Council.
It is believed to have boarded the van at the authority's Lufton Depot in Yeovil and clung on until arriving in Bruton - around 20 miles away.
Searches for the owner of the female kitten, believed to be eight to 12 weeks old, have so far been unsuccessful.
Councillor Jo Roundell Green, portfolio holder for environment, said: "We really hope the owner of the kitten comes forward so that it can be back at home after its traumatic ride.
"If you are missing a little black kitten and are reading this, please get in contact with the district council so you can be reunited."
Ms Roundell Greene urged the owner to contact the council's Streetscene Services on 01935 462839.
