A State Trooper contacted them when they had parked on an off-ramp.

The family from Ohio was driving on Interstate 80 when they saw a tiny calico get thrown out of a moving vehicle. In utter shock, they turned around and rushed to the kitten's rescue. Trooper Greg Goltz happened upon them as they were parked.

The kitten had some burn marks on her head after landing on the concrete. She was meowing, pleading for help. Goltz offered to take the kitten and get her the medical attention she needed. "Trooper Goltz advised (the family) that the kitten needed a name," Nebraska State Patrol said. "Its name is now Tumbles."

After the unthinkable ordeal, the kitten snuggled up on her rescuer's shoulder for some much-needed comfort.

Goltz took the kitten to Aurora Adopt A Pet, a local rescue in Aurora, Nebraska, so she could be seen by a vet.

The little kitten was scared when she arrived, but volunteers took turns spending time with her and giving her all the cuddles she wanted.

"She is a very young kitten and was traumatized - having been thrown out of a car. She is currently at the shelter and is being monitored by our veterinarian," Kathy of Aurora Adopt A Pet told Love Meow.

The sweet kitten is doing well and on the mend. "She has one eye that is being watched and abrasions being treated."
