PIC: Happy ending for Sticky the kitty who was glued to a busy road
An Oregon man has described a five-week-old kitten he rescued after finding it glued to a busy road as "the luckiest kitten in the world".
KPTV says Chuck Hawley came to the aid of the kitten, which had some sort of glue on its paws, neck and tail.
Veterinarian Jenny Bate says it's clear the glue was intentionally put on the kitten's paws.
She was able to remove the glue using mineral oil and the kitten should fully recover.
Hawley says it's incredible the kitten wasn't hit by a car.
He saw several vehicles swerve around it before he could rescue it.
Hawley tells KPTV he and his wife will adopt the kitten. They have named it Sticky.
Marion County Sheriff's Lt. Chris Baldridge says if Hawley files a crime report, his agency will investigate.
The kitten now has a Facebook page, Sticky the Kitty.

Heard about Sticky the Kitten? The kitten that was glued to the road then saved by the wonderful man Chuck Hawley. That was my brother in law. My sister's best friend started a gofindme page so they can pay for their vet bills. https://t.co/1K3Mk91Qvv Go support Skicky!!— Ronald Stephens Jr (@Mosis285) October 23, 2018
