A beautiful little kitten is making a name for herself after she was rescued from being glued to a road.

Chuck Hawley was driving and noticed a number of other cars driving over something black in the road. His first thought was that it was a box because it was small enough to fit between the car tires. But when he got closer he realized it was a tiny, helpless kitten!

Chuck slammed on his brakes to stop his car, stopped the traffic, and put on his hazard lights as he investigated. Someone had physically pasted glue all over this poor kitten’s paws and stuck her to the road!

Chuck took the kitten home and made sure she had a good bath to get rid of all that horrible glue.

She has clearly wrapped the entire family around her tiny paw because after some food and some cream, she was better, and they didn’t want to give her up! This is one of Sticky’s new brothers, who loves having this tiny kitten around (even though he’s grumpy here after surgery!).

And here Sticky is with another member of her family, well and truly at home!

Why someone would pick up a kitten and think it’s fun to glue her to a busy road is beyond understanding. Any kind of cruelty to animals is horrific, but to put a kitten in traffic with no way of escaping is one of the most disgusting things we’ve heard. It isn’t the kitten’s fault it has a mouth that needs feeding, and no animal is born for the sick amusement of humans. We are so glad there was a kind-hearted person like Chuck driving down the road that day to rescue Sticky and take her home.
