Kitten Thrown From Moving Vehicle Along Highway 30

A small kitten was thrown out of a moving vehicle along Highway 30 and left for dead.

“I saw something in the middle of the road and it looked like something off a tire but when I drove past it I almost hit it and it moved,” says Tess Hudson of Ames.

Luckily, Hudson was in the right place at the right time.

“I grabbed this thing out of the middle of the road and it was a kitten and it was completely okay. He was really scared, he was shocked. He was meowing and I wrapped him in a flannel and I took him to the animal control shelter,” says Hudson.

Ron Edwards with Ames Animal Control says the kitten was checked out by the veterinarian.

“He was definitely scared he's still very shy, very scared. We're very fortunate that he didn’t have any significant injuries,” says Edwards.

Edwards says he’s keeping an eye on the kitten who got his name from the woman who saved his life.

“The car I drove up to him and rescued him in was a mini-cooper so we were coming up with name associations and I said I drive a mini-cooper and they said Cooper is his name,” says Hudson.

Ames Police also had a break in the case. Another driver saw the cat being thrown from the car, followed the vehicle into town and took a picture of the suspect’s license plate.

“Right now our investigators are trying to get a hold the registered owner of that vehicle to find out what their side of the story is because we don't have that yet,” says Commander Geoff Huff with the Ames Police Department.

At just one pound, Cooper needs to gain a little weight before being adopted. As fate would have it, Hudson has decided to take him home.

“We're really excited about C
ooper having a happy ending to what could have been a horrible, horrible thing for this tiny little kitten,” says Edwards.

Hudson, who’s going to school to become a veterinarian, says she can’t wait to give Cooper a safe place to call home.

“He's a beautiful little kitten, I'm in love with him,” says Cooper.

The Ames Police Department says the suspect could face a variety of charges including animal cruelty.
