Katie Long noticed a person waving a hand in the middle of the road while traveling to Mountain View, Arkansas, for the weekend.
A little kitty was standing on the street, drenched and terrified.
Long told The Dodo, “I stood there in shock for a while, then we pulled her out of the road to try and figure out what to do.
Long had a feeling the kitten’s mother was nearby, but as they searched and searched the small town, she started to lose hope. Meanwhile, the anxiơus kitten clung to Long, unwilling to be alone.
“We walked all over trying to spot a mama with no luck,” Long said. “When I would set her down she’d walk back to me crying… which made me cry.”
Long approached a local general store and asked the people eating lunch outside if they knew of any lоst cats. Unfortunately, they had no idea.
“Everyone looked at me likе I was insane,” Long said.
Long documented her search for the kitten’s family in a video, which you can watch here:
Still without answers, Long came to terms with the fact that she would probably have to drop the kitten off at a local animal shelter. She was trying to find a shelter, when out of the corner of her eye, she saw a man walking to his mailbox. Somehow, she knew he had answers.
“We raced over and I ran out of the car with her in my arms,” Long said. “I asked him if he had any idea where her family was. And he said, ‘oh yeah I think Bill’s cat just had kittens!’”
Soon enough, the kitten was reunited with her family.
The mother of the cat was overjoyed to have her youngster back at home.
When we arrived, Long noticed three cats in the front yard, one one that was eerily similar to her. Mama immediately began feeding and washing her when I placed her down.
Long is thrilled that the kitten is back in her rightful place and that she was able to contribute to saving an animal.
I’m amazed that we located her family. Long spoke. It’s amazing how quickly you may develop feelings of attachment to a defenseless baby.
