Friday morning, Chuck Hawley from Silverton, Oregon was on his way to work when he spotted something in the middle of the road.

As he got closer, he realized that it was a kitten stuck in the lane.

"I was driving to work and saw cars in front of me passing over something in the road, and realized it was a kitten sitting upright shaking like a leaf," Chuck told Love Meow.

The tiny feline appeared to be stuck to the ground and couldn't break free. Many cars drove around her, but no one stopped. Chuck knew that he had to do something quickly before it was too late. He put his hazard lights on, carefully stopped traffic and rushed to grab the kitten. That's when he noticed that the kitty was covered in glue.

"She was wet, freezing and literally glued to the road," he said.

Chuck gently removed the kitten off the pavement. Her paws were very tender and she was shivering from the cold. He put her in his arms to warm her and swiftly brought her back to his car.

After a much-needed bath and some food, the kitten felt much better. "We don't know who put her there or how long she was there, but she was wet and cold and had leaves stuck to her," Chuck told Love Meow.

He took the kitten to the Silver Creek Animal Clinic, where they removed the rest of the glue and treated her paws with mineral oil. After a long ordeal, the tabby girl was on the mend. She clutched onto her rescuer and purred up a storm.

On their way home, the 5-week-old kitten curled up in his lap and went right to sleep.

The kitten who could barely meow when she was found, now started getting louder. "She was too sticky to really move when I got her off the road but once she was cleaned up, my shoulder was where she wanted to be," Chuck told Love Meow.

The kitty quickly adjusted to her new abode and even snuggled up to the family's dogs for some much-needed TLC. "She is so tiny and tries to nurse our old male Black Labrador."

Chuck knew from the beginning that the kitten would be part of their family.

"We were just talking about getting a cat the other night. She could have found an easier way to find us but she found us," he said. "We are definitely keeping her. My wife has named her Sticky."

In less than a day, the kitten's life was forever changed.

"She went from the worst luck ever to the luckiest kitten in the world," he added.

"I feel like I did the normal human being thing, and everyone should have stopped to help her," Chuck said. "She's a super lover and purrer. She slept between my wife and me last night."

"I'm glad I found her because we scored a cool cat! She will be well loved!"
