    Kitten thrown out of speeding car on highway

    CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY.com) Someone tossed a 6-week-old kitten out of their window while driving down the highway in Chesapeake Thursday morning.
    Another driver saw the kitten thrown into traffic along Rt. 168 around 7:30 a.m.
    The tiny animal has several broken bones. He can't move his back legs, and he's in a lot of pain. His face is red with road-rash.
    Michelle Laney saw it all happen. "I said, 'Oh my God! You have got to be kidding me.'"
    Laney was driving on 168 North on the overpass between the Mount Pleasant and Kempsville exits, when she says she saw someone a couple cars ahead of her throw a tiny kitten out of their window going 65 miles an hour.
    "The kitten hit the pavement, then he tried to drag himself out of the road. What do you do? You're in shock."
    Laney pulled to the side of the road and went to find the kitten.
    "And I ran up the overpass and he was at the top huddled against the jersey wall."
    Laney rushed the tiny kitten to the nearest vet.
    Dr. David Banta x-rayed the kitten.
    "The biggest problem, he's got several little pelvic fractures. The real concern is he has a couple different fractures in his femur, so both legs are broken and in one leg he's got two broken bones too," said Dr. Banta.
    It will take expensive surgery and a few pins and wires to put the little guy back together, but with that his prognosis is good.
    "I'd say once we are done with surgery he'd be able to walk in 3-5 days," said Dr. Banta.
    The problem is, Laney doesn't have the $2-3,000 it would take to save the kitten.
    If Laney can't find the money, the kitten will not be able to get the surgery.
    Anyone wanting to help the kitten get his surgery, you can make a donation to:
    Mount Pleasant Veterinary Clinic
    209 Mount Pleasant Road
    Chesapeake, Va. 23322
    c/o 168 Kitty
    The vet's phone number is -- 482 - 3534

    Those kind of people disgust me.

    My daughter's boyfriend got his kitten like that a couple of weeks ago. He was driving home from a party and found it lying in the road. Thankfully, she was sore but had no serious injuries when checked out. As he carried on he found two more who unfortunately were dead.

    People can be such pricks.

    Poor kitty, makes me so sad/mad,

    Our kitty was tossed from a car before he made it to a shelter where he stayed for several years. No one would adopt him because he wasn't "normal" looking. He had damage to jaw, neck (he has problems breathing in certain positions) and his teeth had grown in so crooked that his fangs had to shaved down.

    I noticed that too. It almost read as like they are going to leave the kitten as is, until the vet gets paid. To me, that is just as fucked up as throwing it out a car window. To leave a broken and battered kitten unfixed, until you get paid, is cruel to me. It's not like fixing one kitten for free is going to bankrupt the office.
