    “We were a little delirious from lack of sleep but we could swear we heard meowing coming from under the hood of a pickup truck,” lead singer Nick Wold told BuzzFeed Music in an email.

    When they asked a gas station employee about the cat sounds, Wold says she told the band that she knew their was a cat in the car but drove eight miles to work anyway because she couldn’t find the animal.

    "We convinced her to open up the hood and there was a tiny black kitten sitting right there on the engine," he explained. "She quickly grabbed it and handed it to me. The kitten was brand new, couldn't have been more than 2 weeks old, and was making terrified spitting hisses and clawing at my hand with weak harmless claws as if fighting for its life. We stuffed it in a cardboard box and took it on the road."

    While the group has been enjoying their time Lil Trucker, they're hoping to find their adorable mascot a forever home soon.
