Nobody knows how this poor 2 year old American Curl ginger cat got stuck on a Freeway in Arizona, with burns to his paw pads and a bleeding mouth and paws ( some Reports say he got burned by a car engine ) but thanks to Richard Christianson, he was rescued – and now he is okay and has been adopted by his rescuer, and named Freeway.
The 15 second video above shows this kitty clinging for his life to a wire fence. He will need alot of tender love and care, after going through such an experience. A news report states that Christianson already has 4 dogs and 3 cats. Freeway the cat is featured on two Facebook pages, one of them is Richard Christianson’s page, if you want to see how he is faring.
Sadly, with the publicity & the nature of social media, the “trolls” come also. Although anyone with a brain and eyes can see that the Video is authentic and that this cat would very likely have been killed if Richard had not rescued him, someone has been nasty to Richard on his Facebook page, saying it was a scam and he is just trying to make money from this.
Yes, someone else set up a Funding page to get some contributions toward paying for Freeway’s substantial veterinary bills, and via that webpage, Richard stated the excess was going to organizations helping animals.
Please post messages of support for Richard on his FB page ( 2nd link below ) if you feel so inclined.
