Cat thrown from moving car recovering well, rescuers say
Dec 16, 2010
A kitten in the United Kingdom was forced to cash in one of his nine lives after possibly being thrown from a car, the Press Association reports. Thankfully, the feline is recovering from his injuries.
The news source reports that the animal was found on the side of the road in Luton, England, and was quickly handed over to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA).
"Because his face was so scuffed, we have reached the conclusion that there is a chance that he could have been just thrown from a moving car, which is just an awful thing to do," RSPCA inspector Melanie Fisher told the news outlet.
She also went on to explain that despite the kitten's trying ordeal, he is recovering well and appears to be full of energy. He was affectionately given the name Rudolph because of the red marks he incurred after the incident.
The RSPCA reports that in 2009, more than 1.25 million phone calls were made reporting cruelty to animals in England and Wales.
