Police shared several photos of the cat along with a video of him sitting on the side of the road as cars flew by.


The fuzzy feline is reportedly missing fur on his tail from what appears to be a burn. Massachusetts State Police have said nothing more about his condition at this time.


He is waiting to be medically cleared, at which time he’ll be put up for adoption, the Facebook post reveals.


The Animal Rescue League of Boston has provided no further updates on the animal, though they’ve promised to keep followers abreast of his healing process.
