'Freeway' the cat saved by a good Samaritan on busy Phoenix highway

A selfless passerby who saved a cat trapped on a busy highway last week is being hailed as a hero.

Richard Christianson posted a video of himself online saving an orange Tabby cat trapped on the I-17 in Phoenix, Arizona on April 9.

Christianson tried calling the emergency services and public safety offices but they couldn’t send help fast enough.

So, seeing no other option, he took it upon himself to save the cat, who was bleeding from the mouth and paws after trying to escape from the highway.

The cat, named Freeway, is in care at an animal hospital following surgery. Doctors expect him to make a full recovery.

Once at full health Freeway will be available for adoption.

    That poor catt

  49. Luizifer Behel on March 16, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    I love how the cat let the man help him, long ago i tried to help a cat, it got spooked and jumped to its death, it landed on a metal piece that went through its skull, it was afraid of humans because kids would abuse him.
    It was a winter rainy day and it was very cold outside, i would leave food outside so he could eat but all it wanted was warmth, i even let the door open but nothing..till this day i wish i could’ve saved him. I remember when he was a kitten but once he grew the owners just forgot about him.
