ELKHART, Ind. (AP) - A cat rescued after spending two days marooned atop a northern Indiana freeway sign had a voracious appetite when he arrived at a local animal shelter.

The cat was spotted Thursday on a sign near an overpass along U.S. 33 in Elkhart, but police couldn't find him when they arrived. The following day, however, the Humane Society of Elkhart County received a similar call and shelter workers spotted an orange cat sitting on top of a light on the sign, about 15 feet from the overpass.

A crew from the city's street department rescued the cat from its precarious perch.

Humane Society assistant director Megan Gonterman tells The Elkhart Truth (http://bit.ly/ZXA4Br ) the cat, now named Freeway, may have been thrown off of the overpass onto the sign.
