SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (KION-TV) -- A small kitten had to be rescued off Highway 1 near Morrissey Boulevard after it was found scared and nestled against the center divide.
The Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter says the kitten was reported by someone driving along the highway Friday morning.
An animal shelter officer saw the gray kitten, hunkered down and scared as cars and trucks sped by.
CHP assisted in shutting down the highway as the shelter officer removed the cat from the area.
The officer safely impounded the cat which is now sitting far away from the highway at the county animal shelter.
