You know that I do not like those metal boxes with wheels. I do not like getting into them, because that means that the human will likely be taking me to the humans in white coats. Even though I have learned to tolerate the humans in white coats, I still do not like them.
If I do not like being inside of one of these metal boxes with wheels, can you imagine how horrible it would be for a kitten who is stuck on the freeway with lots of those going by very quickly? Well, that is what happened recently in the Bay Area, and thanks to a very kind human, this turned out to be a happy cat rescue and adoption.
A human saw a tiny little kitten in the median of the 580 freeway in Oakland. She stopped to get the cat, and the cat hopped into her wheel to hide. She tried to get the feline out, but she was unable to. Then she called the California Highway Patrol, and they sent a tow truck to get the car.
The tow truck driver was able to get the cat out, and the human who stopped to rescue the kitten was going to take the feline to the Humane Society. But another human who also stopped to help decided to adopt the feline on the spot.
It is said that we felines have nine lives. I wonder how many lives this feline used up in its short time with us. Not only did it manage to make it to the median, but then it made it to the humans car, and didn’t get burnt by the hot brakes. And then the cat rescue story gets better, as the feline gets out of the wheel and then is adopted on the spot so that it does not have to risk running out of time at the shelter!
