Pet-Store Owner Sees Kitten Cheating Death in Traffic, Springs Into Action




The cat is ‘a real sweetheart.’

A kitten was in a bad situation in Alameda, CA — it had somehow ended up in the middle of a busy road. Cars were literally running over the animal, but so far the tires had missed him.

Fortunately, pet-store owner Cynthia Schorle saw what was happening and took quick action to rescue the feline, the East Bay Times reports. She had to stop traffic to scoop up the animal.

Schorle took him back to her business, called Alameda See Spot Run, and named him Winston.

She then worked with Hopalong and Second Chance Animal Rescue, which has a relationship with Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter.


The kitten is now being looked after by Hopalong cat program manager Emily Shafer. If all goes well, she plans to adopt Winston.

Schorle told the East Bay Times: “He’s super-sassy, but he’s also a real sweetheart.”
