Kitty Trapped On Deadly Highway, Thanks Cop Who Saved Her Life With Cuddles And Purrs
Seeing a stray dog or cat in a bad situation makes most people want to help. If a pet gets out and on to a busy road, it's never a good thing. Unfortunately, such episodes usually end in tragedy for the animal.
Watching an animal trying to escape death on a busy road? Absolutely horrible. That's why you see videos of people rushing out into traffic trying to rescue them. According to ABC news, A man on a motorcycle in Oklahoma was one such person. Her rescue of a tiny kitten in the middle of an intersection is heart-pounding.
Trucks are passing by the little tiny orange kitten, often with only an inch or two to spare. The kitten is totally terrified trying to get away, but with nowhere to go. Danger is in every direction. His rescuer spotted him and his dilemma. She stopped traffic, picked the little fuzzball up, and took him home. His name is "Skid" and he is her forever feline.
The good news is that both survived the encounter. But, when busy roads and fast traffic is involved, there are no guarantees. What made the next rescue possible was a cop who could do the rescue safely.
Somehow, the kitten had become perched on a center divider, with several lanes on either side of it. If the kitten had jumped down or fallen, it was likely she would have been hit. Officer Jason Smith got the call. With others controlling traffic, the officer hopped out of the vehicle and approached the tiny kitten, who was huddled next to a glove stuck in the divider.
The poor baby is crying out of sheer terror as the officer approaches. It's heartbreaking to hear such a tiny thing making such a desperate noise. Office Smith was able to get the wee feline out of harm's way with nothing but a potentially singed tail. She seems healthy and fell in love with her rescuer immediately. She was meowing and purring from the moment the officer got her to safety.
Jason Smith was her forever human from the moment they met. After she got through the standard checks and hold, "Bella" went home with the officer and settled into her forever home just fine.
The rescue of Bella and Skid are both terrifying and heartwarming. Have you ever rescued a kitten from a dangerous situation? Let us know in the comments - and make sure you pass this along to your friends and family!
