HOUSTON – A kitten that was faced with near-death has a new lease on life after it was rescued by the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office.
According to a Facebook post by Harris County Pct. 4 Constable Mark Herman, a driver threw the kitten onto the main lanes near the North Sam Houston Parkway and the Beltway.
Lt. Fragkias was able to find the kitten, which was still on the main lanes, and rescued it, according to the post.
Herman shared an update Thursday saying the kitten, now named Iris in honor of Fragkias, has been adopted to “loving owners,” and they will be taking her to the vet to make sure she is in good health.
There is no word on whether authorities were able to locate the driver.
