Spotted in a puddle on the side of a highway, this little kitten is now a happy house cat! (Gallery)
Thanks to some good Samaritans, this little kitten is now safe and warm in a loving home.
Meet Indy the kitten!
"We were on our way home with a car full of groceries, when I spotted him in a puddle on the side of the highway (going 75mph)," Deardarlingdearling shared on imgur. "My husband pulled the car over and I got out. Once I got to the little guy, he slowly looked at me and then bolted out into traffic! Thankfully, all of the cars were slowed or stopping at that time, so I ran after him."
"A few people who had stopped and gotten out of their cars tried to help catch him. The little rascal, even though very skinny, put up a real fight. He climbed into the undercarriage of a car and when I got him, he bit me and drew a lot of blood (I'm fine), and got away. He then climbed into the wheel-well of the car and someone grabbed him and wrapped him in a shirt and handed him to me and said to keep the shirt. I thanked everyone that stopped and helped, then ran back to our car. We gave him a bath and have him warm and comfortable."
"I had to put a sock on him because we figured out he had a (non-contagious) bacterial skin infection that he kept chewing on."
"His older sister, Daisy, is still getting used to him. So, when I saw this, I had to capture the moment before it was gone. She ran away right after the camera made a noise."
He loves his rooster friend!
"We were told that he was around 3-4 weeks old. He was chock full of worms and very malnourished and ended up with a bacterial infection of the skin, this is why he had to wear a sock. Now, he's healthy as can be and causes trouble every day."
He's a happy boy. :)
