WATCH: Kitten Rescued from Inside Car Wheel Gets Adopted on the Spot

Sara Weeber just couldn’t say no to that face.

The sales consultant at Preferred Chevrolet Buick GMC in Grand Haven, Michigan, shot this video of a feline being rescued from inside of a car by two of her coworkers — and she tells PEOPLE that even before she formally met the kitten, the adoption was a done deal.

“As soon as I realized it was a baby kitten, I knew I had to have him,” says Weeber, 23, who adopted the cat, named Encore, on the spot Saturday.

In the video, shared to Facebook and viewed over 3,000 times, a dealership service tech named George and a new car sales manager named Mark Shoe are seen saving the 4 to 6 week-old kitten from the wheel well of a Buick Encore (the cat was later named Encore in honor of the SUV).

Weeber tells PEOPLE she is “assuming the cat got chased in there by something, somehow,” and while Encore can be heard crying in video as the two men try to rescue him, he’s singing a different tune now that he’s free.

“He’s doing great, playful as ever,” Weeber says. “He’s a little monster, he tries to eat the dog food. He’ll eat whatever.”
