While teenagers often get a bad rap, teenagers do so many acts of kindness, that I think we should recognize that. There is one teenager in particular who deserves recognition for rescuing a kitten from a horrible act of cruelty!

Erin Brown and her fourteen year old son, Gavin were driving down the highway one afternoon, on their way to a party, when they saw a kitten thrown out of a moving car! Needless to say, Erin and her son, Gavin were shocked and appalled.

However, without missing a beat, Erin stopped the car, and Gavin jumped out, was able to signal oncoming traffic to stop, and he was able to rescue this pitiful kitten. The kitten was about to jump off of the overpass they were crossing when Gavin picked him up.

Fortunately, despite hitting the pavement, the kitten was conscious and not badly injured. It’s claws had been torn from trying to grasp the pavement, and it was breathing hard, so Gavin and his mother rushed the cat to the vet. Gavin held tight to the kitten, who cuddled against him, and the two formed an instant bond.

At the veterinary hospital, the staff treated the kitten and gave it pain medication. Meanwhile, the story about this brave young man rescuing the cat from an overpass went viral, and a kind stranger offered to pay the high medical bills! The cat is now a new member of the Brown family and has, appropriately, been named Lucky!
