Freeway the cat recovering after being left over a Michiana roadway

The Humane Society of Elkhart County posted a photo on its Facebook page of a cat who spent two days dangling above a Michiana roadway about two weeks ago.

They say someone threw the animal over the overpass onto Main Street, but amazingly he managed to land on part of the overpass signage.

The cat was stuck there for 48 hours until Humane Society officers and the Elkhart City Street Department rescued him. Fittingly, the cat's been named Freeway and they say he is sure a lover.

But folks wishing to welcome the feline into their home will have to wait just a little bit longer. The Humane Society posted Thursday that the wound on Freeway's leg is slowly healing and required veterinary attention. So, those interested in adopting him will have to hold off until he recuperates.

In the meantime, anyone who witnessed the incident should call the Humane Society or Elkhart Police.
