A 14-year old boy hurried to save a kitten hanging off the over-bridge on a highway. The fluffy was so appreciative to be rescued that he stuck to his savior and did not want to leave him.
Meet Gavin and his little new friend Lucky.
Erin Brown could not believe what she witnessed, while she was driving her son to a birthday party on February the 12th.
A cat was thrown out of a window from moving wheels in front of them. As she stopped the car, Gavin, left the car and indicated the incoming traffic to halt, so he could reach the cat and save him.
“In shock looking at the cat bang the road and rush all over the highway he ran to the bridge right by me and jumped on top of the bridge,” Brown said to us.
Gavin jumped out of the car, as fast as he can he ran to the bridge and clutched the little cat.
“I don’t know which is more shocking, the cat being tossed out the window of a moving car on 196 or my son running out of my car onto the highway and diving into an overpass to save it.”
Erin BrownThe cat was heavily breathing from the shock. His nails were ripped off from trying to grip the pavement.
“He cuddled right into Gavin’s arms and Gavin hugged him closely and just kept petting him to calm him down and make him feel safe again.”
Lucky was brought to BluePearl Animal Hospital, and the team started taking care of him and giving him meds to ease his pain. “Gavin was so attached to his new baby and he was so emotional about him.”
Next, a generous Samaritan heard about their story from Facebook and volunteered to pay for a big part of the medical costs. Gavin was surprised by the kind offer, and his eyes were wet of tears. “then he said, ‘I’ll give all the $63 I have to get us closer to the total expenses we need to save my new cat.’ My heart just grew with appreciation,” Brown added.
Lucky is getting much better and improving day by day with his new family.
The two buddies became very close to each other. “Lucky is well aware that Gavin rescued him and their connection is one I just can’t explain,” Brown said. “Lucky is so far the cutest cat I have ever seen! He is so soft and happy and just obviously adorable!”
The brave kid has a warm heart for animals and always dreamed to be a vet in the future. Now he is set to make it real.
