DETROIT - The Michigan Humane Society says two stowaway kittens made a more than 1,000-mile trip from Louisiana in the bed of a truck carrying flammable chemicals.

The Detroit News and TV stations WXYZ and WDIV report that the kittens were found earlier this week in Michigan and picked up by a Humane Society rescue team.

They were taken to the Detroit Center for Animal Care, where they were given a clean bill of health.

The kittens that made the four-day trip are now being called "Bonnie" and "Clyde," and they're expected to be put up for adoption as a pair.
