Little guy needs to find a good home

We found this kitten at 9pm on a busy Hwy last night. Did not know what it was and almost hit it with my truck. So I turned around and ran across three lanes of traffic and found this little guy in the road.
Theirs no houses for a mile on this stretch of road.

He (if it's a he) is cute as can be.

Any reason you can't keep him ?. I look at all 4 of my monsters, all between 4 and 10 yrs. old with a memory of how they came into our lives. Makes them even more special, especially when they barf in my shoes at night, or lick the butter on the dining room table.

That's great! This little kitty has at least 2 humans to care for him now. I like happy endings.

They were so excited that before they picked up the little guy they went to PetSmart and spent a lot of money on stuff for him. He is going to the Vet. next week to get a check up and any shots he is going to need.
He is going to have a good home. If he stayed at my house just one more day I would have kept him for myself.
He was a playful little guy and were ever my wife walked we was running right behind her. I'll see him almost every day now that he lives only 100ft. away.

Another family lost to kitty-serfdom. All is well with the world.

(Trimmed the claws of Mango and Pumpkin this morning. They seem to be OK with manicures.)

If you don't want to keep them find a good home. Don't dump the little guys in the middle of a busy hi way.
Whats wrong with some people

I don't know. Maybe they get a free cat then they don't want to spend the money to spay or neuter it. Do it at age 4 months.

That's some serious cuteness right there. Glad he/she's got a new home.

The lady that gave the little guy a new home works the night shift and I see her when I go in to work in the morning. She gave me a run down on how the little kitten is doing and it's eating good and running all over the house. She telling me that her husband is laying on the floor playing with him and wants to build him this.

Wow, he's looking great!! Thanks for the update, glad it's worked out for your neighbor and the kitty. What did they end up naming him?

Too bad you couldn't get together with the person who found the other kitty and this one for a reunion meeting!
