This frightened kitten was stranded in the central reservation (central barrier) on a busy highway. As you can see in the video, he or she was on top of a concrete barrier screaming at the top of his voice as the police officer approaches. The kitten was clearly very thankful to be approached by the police officer. It seems that the kitten recognised the fact that he was being rescued.
I find myself becoming a bit anxious watching these sorts of rescues because as you approach a kitten under these circumstances he is likely, or it is possible, that he will run off under the tension of the moment and into traffic. On this occasion all was well and the kitten remained passive and accepting.
I like the way that at the end of the video the kitten pushes a button or flicks a switch accidentally and sets of the siren. You can hear the police officer apologising to his control centre. The great mystery with kittens being rescued from the middle of busy motorways is how they got there in the first place. It makes me think that they’ve been abandoned on the highway. This would be the most logical conclusion. If I’m correct then of course it is a terrible thing to do.
It would be a way of attempting to kill the kitten. Who gets pleasure from that?
