14-year-old risked his life to save cat thrown from a van onto a busy overpass — 6 Comments

  1. I, too, had a “Lucky”. His full name was Mr. Lucky Buck-no special reason I just liked the sound of the name. He was rescued from an apartment complex after getting away from some dogs and a few ugly humans. I jumped back into my truck and raced to my vet crying all the way. When they asked me what I wanted to do I just cried more and said “Fix him”. He spent a couple of weeks in the hospital, and came home looking a bit beaten up, but with such a big purr. My husband asked why I named him Mr Lucky Buck, and our daughter (who was about 3) piped up and said “Because it cost a lot of bucks to save his lucky body.” I was able to show my husband that most of the cost was given by the hospital, as a thank you for bringing all our pets to them and also sending friends to them. Mr. Lucky Buck lived to the age of 17 years.

  2. We have a Lucky we named because he almost died from a URI. His sister did die a few hours before we were to rescue her.

  3. What a story! I know how the boy felt. I may have written about this here before but I also saved a cat on a busy highway who was also probably thrown from a car minutes before, as it was unlikely the tiny girl ended up there on her own. I mention it again because I named her lucky too. What a coincidence. We were also friends for life.

    • Great job Albert. If I was involved in an attempted cat rescue from a highway and the cat was killed it would leave me traumatised.
