— A woman whose cat caught a squirrel Wednesday was so worried for the animal that she called a cab to deliver it to Triangle Wildlife Rehabilitation.

Ann Rogers said she got a call from Sallie Crawford of Hillsborough, who was concerned that bacteria in her cat's mouth would infect the squirrel.

Crawford doesn't drive, so she called a cab and paid about $55 for the trip, Rogers said.

Rogers said "Squirrely" will eventually be released back into the wild.
