This little show-stopper’s movin’ on up.
According to a Facebook post from the Massachusetts State Police, a grey kitten saved from a highway tunnel on Route 90 over the weekend has been taken to a shelter.
The cat stopped traffic on the busy roadway, walking around inside the connector tunnel. Police were notified and arrived on the scene to save the kitten.
According to the Facebook post, Sgt. Bob Dateo shut down traffic to rescue the animal. The cat was taken away by the Animal Rescue League of Boston.
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.
In the meantime, authorities are crowd sourcing a name for the cat.
