Good Samaritan rescues kitten dumped onto I-70 from moving vehicle

KANSAS CITY, Kan. - A Good Samaritan rescued a kitten thrown out of a moving car Friday. After leaving a dentist appointment, Robert Ramberger was driving down I-70 in Kansas City, Kansas, and he noticed that someone in a car on the highway threw at least two kittens out of the car.

"I think they were opening their door and throwing them under the car. He took  a rough ride, the a car was going like 75 mph  when he threw the little guy out," said Ramberger.

Ramberger pulled over onto the shoulder, got out of his car and went into oncoming traffic to try to save the kittens. He manage to save one kitten, Rambo.

"I scooped him up and threw him in my car and brought him to the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City."

"He's kind of a miracle kitty, " said Keith Weidenkeller, President and CEO of the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City. 

It took workers about an hour to get the frightened kitty out of Ramberger’s car.

“He was pretty banged up although I would say remarkably in one piece for kitten that had been thrown out the car on highway speed,” said Weidenkeller

Rambo managed to escape with no broken bones and few scratches and bruise. In a few weeks he’ll be ready for a adoption.

"The reason that we exist is because of people like Robert in the world who care about what happens to animals and how we treat them and how that reflects on who we are as people, " said Weidenkeller.
