Julian the cat landed on his feet and into the arms of a Good Samaritan Corey Hardeman from Wells, B.C.
Hardeman, an artist, found Julian by the side of the highway after she saw him being tossed out of a moving truck.
She was driving through B.C.’s interior when she noticed the driver’s side door in front of her open.
In the fading light of dusk, Hardeman could barely make out the shape of a cat falling out on to the road. It almost got run over by another vehicle.
She pulled over, got out and looked for the cat. As she told CBC radio in Prince George, she called for the cat.
I sat down in the snowy, muddy ditch and called the cat for a good few minutes.”
Eventually, the cat, wet, slushy and smelling kind of funny, approached Handeman and she scooped it up.
She took the cat home, named it Julian and doesn’t think much of the person who would do that to a critter.
I don’t even know what to say. Most of it would be obscenity laced … it’s just an inhumane thing to do…t’s a disgusting, cruel and just an awful thing to do.”
