Kitten thrown from truck, saved by good Samaritan

Updated:
PHOENIX -

A 5-week-old kitten was tossed out the window of a moving truck. Luckily, a good Samaritan stepped in and helped save his life.

A cat was literally thrown out of a car, presumably left for dead.

Workers at the humane society say they have no idea why someone would do this, but the good news: the kitten is doing just fine.

"He's very lucky to be alive and quite the trooper, that's for sure," said Ashleigh Goebel, with Arizona Humane Society.

A 5-week-old kitten has quite the story to tell.

"She said she was driving down 43rd Avenue and Bell and saw this little guy thrown out of a pick up car window," said Goebel.

The woman who saw the kitten thrown out immediately called the humane society for help.

"Brought him back to the shelter, our vets checked him out and he is one lucky kitty," said Goebel.

Lucky, because the kitten, who doesn't have a name yet and weighs under a pound, had no fractures, no broken bones--no injuries at all.

"I'm just surprised how humans treat animals sometimes. Something so innocent, so little, so defenseless and to treat them like that just breaks my heart," said Goebel.

The woman who witnessed the little guy being tossed out of the window was too concerned with the cat to be able to get the license plate number of the truck.

But the whole ordeal doesn't seem to have phased the cat at all.

"He's ready to explore and love and cuddle, he's just the cutest little thing," said Goebel.

Workers at the humane society are excited to see the kitten grow, get stronger and get ready to adopt him out to a forever home.

"His future's looking bright now, that's a good thing," said Goebel.

The cat will be going to a foster home Sunday night, where they will help him gain a bit of weight.

They expect to be able to adopt him out in about two to four weeks.

Again, there are no leads as to who the person was that threw him out of the truck.
