Freeway the kitten
A few weeks ago, a kitten found itself on the upper deck of the Fremont Bridge.
I wouldn't bring this up if the story didn't have a happy ending. A motorist with a heart of fried gold stopped traffic and risked her life to save the feline's. At the time the story appeared in the Oregonian a few weeks ago, the kitten's prognosis was looking good.
This leaves me to wonder, how did the kitten, now dubbed "Freeway" by the staff at the Dove Lewis Animal Hospital, wind up there in the first place? Sure, he could have been tossed out a car window by the world's cruelest pet owner but what if Freeway just so happens to be the world's most badass kitten? Maybe he was egged on by all the other kittens or maybe he knew exactly what he was doing. At the time of his discovery, Freeway was seen "scooting" across the highway.
Somewhere, this kitten could very be putting together a video submission for the inevitable third entry in the Jackass movie series. Long live Freeway!
