Kitten dumped from SUV on I-5 in Ore., survives

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A 4-month-old kitten suffered a broken femur after it was dumped from a moving car onto the side of Interstate 5 in Salem.

Good Samaritans known only as Betty and Roger told wildlife rescuer Tari Edmonds they were traveling toward Portland when they saw an SUV open its passenger-side window, dangle and then drop a small, fluffy object, The Statesman Journal reports.

The couple thought it might be a scarf, but as they approached they saw it was a powder-gray kitten.

The couple thought to give chase to the SUV and get its license plate number, but decided to pull over and rescue the kitten.

An online fundraising drive to pay for the kitten’s surgery netted more than $1,000.
