Chuck Hawley writing on Facebook said the following:

“So I’m driving down the road this morning and the cars in front of me are driving over a black thing in the road. It’s going between their tires so I’m guessing it’s a box. It’s a kitten just sitting upright shaking like a leaf. And some asshole had spread glue on his paws and stuck it to the road. I thought maybe it walked through glue somewhere but after looking at it, that was totally spread into her paws. She was wet and freezing and literally glued to the road. And NO ONE STOPPED 😛 . What the f$&k people??? I slammed on my brakes and stopped all the traffic and put my hazards on and got out and peeled her off the road. People were honking and all pissy…. Really??? It’s a kitten glued to the road!! So after a goo gone bath and some food and cream we have a new kitten. Luckiest kitten in the world!

What you think about that? What do you think about someone gluing a kitten to the road? I think it is about as bad gets when it comes to cat cruelty. The only kind of person who could do this as someone who is psychopathic. It would be nice if he was caught. If anybody can help please contact law enforcement.

Of course, we have to praise, unreservedly, Chuck Hawley. It’s quite difficult to stop in the middle of the road and quite dangerous. The cars behind won’t see what you see, a kitten in the middle of the road, and they might not see you’ve stopped.

They won’t understand why you parked in the middle of the road. That’s why they get pissed off. So you do something very dangerous to save a kitten’s life and you piss everybody off at the same time. Well done Mr Hawley. I love to see the person who did it get punished.

Me

Several years ago, I stopped in the middle-of-the-road to save a squirrel who had been hit by a car. The squirrel was still alive but badly injured and I couldn’t bear to think that he’d be run over by a car so I stop. All hell broke loose behind me. As happened with Mr Hawley, people honked their horns and complaining bitterly. I got the squirrel off the road into some bushes beside the road and left him there, perhaps to die.

  1. Total heros, Chuck Hawley & Michael Broad!

    My loathing of those who did this to the kitten extends to engulf those who drove past or around/over the kitten.

    I only have a litany of serious profanity for them. Scummy, selfish cowards is about as polite as I can manage here.

    Never look away, ever.

  2. If it was a puppy there would have been a ring of cars around it and several police cars and the fire dept called. But it was a cat.

  3. Good for Mr. Hawley and of course the kitten. Cruelty seems to be a hobby with some people these days. The moral conscience of the entire U.S. has been led in the wrong direction by our “leader” and the politicians who support or tolerate him. The public is at fault too. We’ve been going down this wrong road (as it were) for a long time, but now it’s faster and faster. We who see this and want to counter it should step up our efforts and take every opportunity to do the right things as openly and conspicuously as possible. The more attention the better. Set a good example and give other hope. I also have stopped traffic to help injure animals, putting myself in danger. It’s always the right thing to do, for the animal as well as society in general now.

    • CORRECTIONS: “to give others hope” and “to help injured animals”. Micheal, I’ve mentioned before and I still think it would be great to consider making it possible for a few minutes to edit our comments before locking us out. It would save having to add correction replies to our own comments, too, like this.

      • I totally agree about the editing comments. The trouble I have is that the current software is standard WordPress. I’ll have to use a ‘plugin’ for the comments and I have been trying to remove some plugins because they slow down the page load times. I am wrestling with the technical issues of speeding up the site. I have to balance page load speed against the convenience of letting visitors edit comments.

        • Thanks, I understand, and I’ll try to proof-read my comments better before committing them. I just hate when mistakes slip by me. The one I made above where I said (I help injure animals instead of injured) was a doozy.

    • My late husband’s 90+ year old aunt broke her hip and fell into Good Hope Road (a major thoroughfare in the suburban Milwaukee area) while taking her trash to the curb and nobody stopped. One truck not only buzzed past the white haired lady laying in the street, he didn’t even completely move into the next lane as he did it, narrowly missing her.

      She’s ok now, and somebody did eventually stop and block the lane with his vehicle, but not until at least 100 cars had driven past her. It is no surprise to me that people don’t care about animals in the street. They won’t even slow down or move all the way over to go around an elderly woman in the street.

  5. Well, I once chased down a pickup truck driver that swerved to hit a young rabbit on the road. And at the first stoplight got out of my pickup and stood in front of his truck, arms crossed. He changed into the left hand turn lane. I hope that he regretted his moves. I can’t even begin to comprehend this *sshole’s decision to torment a harmless animal’s helplessness.
