Friday morning, Chuck Hawley from Silverton, Oregon was on his way to work when he spotted something in the middle of the road. As he watched other cars drive over it, he figured it was a box that had blown into the road, but when he got closer he realized in horror that the truth was much more sinister.
He saw a tiny kitten that was completely scared and trembling. And just when he reached for it, he noticed it was glued to the road. He simply couldn’t believe there are people out there who would do such a thing.
He knew he had to act fast and take the poor creature to a safe place, otherwise it could end up hit by a vehicle, Chuck carefully peeled her off the road took the kitten to a local shelter. The staff took care of the kitten and removed the rubber cement from its fur using mineral oil.
After a thorough check up, they found puncture wounds on the 5-week-old kitten’s neck. The wounds were treated and Chuck filed a police report. Everyone wanted the person who did the cruel act to be prosecuted.
Amazingly, the little kitten turned out to be a big hero. She survived the trauma and was ready to start a new life. There was another miracle waiting for this beautiful rescue cat just around the corner.
Chuck and his wife adopted the kitten, they were eager to take the cat in. They named her Sticky the Kitty and gave her a forever home. Sticky is now getting used to life with Chuck and his wife and their two dogs, but something tells us she is going to be just fine!
So day two with the Hawleys…gotta say it's going pretty good…????

We are still very sad because of what this baby kitten had to go through, but at the same time very happy because she found her place and her story has a happy ending. Thanks to Chuck who cared enough to stop and help, a precious life was saved.
