Thanks to a passing motorist and roadway police, a cat was rescued from danger and is being treated for minor injuries at the vet now.
Police Service Northern Ireland posted a photo following the kitten’s rescue to their PSNI Road Policing Twitter account today, writing: “Kitten rescued this morning from M1, Lurgan. Please retweet so we can reunite with owner. Passing motorist did the right thing & rang us. RP motorway officers dispatched & safely rescued animal from M1.”
According to officers from the PSNI’s Road Policing unit, the little cat was found in the M1 highway’s central median as traffic sped by and was taken to the vet for minor injuries following the rescue.
The road police service told the story in greater detail at Facebook, writing: “This little kitten thought it was a good idea to sit in the central reservation of the M1 at Lurgan earlier today and watch the traffic pass by. Thankfully, an observant passing motorist did the right thing and contacted police who were able to dispatch Road Policing Motorway officers based at Mahon Road to the scene who kept everyone safe and conducted a purr-fect rescue. He/she is currently being cared for by the Willow Veterinary Clinic in Portadown for minor cuts and shock.”
The police hope kitty’s family will see the posts so kitty can be reunited with them.
