NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio -- The iconic leaping jaguar hood ornament on Jaguar luxury cars is recognizable to most. But what about a live cat on the hood of a car?

A couple in Ohio were seen driving down the street with their leashed cat on the hood of the car.

The feline hood surfer drew the attention of nearby drivers, and Polly Vandall saw her opportunity for a photo.

"I looked over and glanced to my left and thought 'Is that a cat on the hood?'" she said to WKYC. "It was walking around and it was not happy to be on the hood. People around the car were staring at the cat -- quite distracted."

Surveillance video from a nearby gas station shows the couple taking the cat for a walk before placing it back on the hood of the vehicle.

The photo has since gone viral and the local police department is looking for any information on the drivers or vehicle.

    I’m glad the police are looking for these idiots and the cat should be taken away from them and post their names so they can’t get any other pets.

    Years back I was driving with the hubby westbound on I90 towards Elgin when we spotted a dog in a plastic milk crate on the back of a motorcycle. I don’t know if the dog was firmly attached to the milk crate but it was certainly abusive.
