PICS: Happy ending for Sticky the kitty who was glued to a busy road

2018-10-23 11:32

A US man has described a five-week-old kitten he rescued after finding it glued to a busy Oregon road as "the luckiest kitten in the world". 

KPTV says Chuck Hawley came to the aid of the kitten, which had some sort of glue on its paws, neck and tail.

Veterinarian Jenny Bate says it's clear the glue was intentionally put on the kitten's paws.

She was able to remove the glue using mineral oil and the kitten should fully recover.

Hawley says it's incredible the kitten wasn't hit by a car.

He saw several vehicles swerve around it before he could rescue it.

Hawley tells KPTV he and his wife will adopt the kitten. They have named it Sticky.

Marion County Sheriff's Lt. Chris Baldridge says if Hawley files a crime report, his agency will investigate.

The kitten now has a Facebook page, Sticky the Kitty.
