More than three days after finding a cat on the Kansas Turnpike, a trooper is giving her a new home.
Thursday, the turnpike posted this tweet. "If you lost furniture on the turnpike a couple nights ago, let us know. P.S. we have your cat, too."
Lisa Callahan with the Turnpike Authority says Tuesday night some furniture fell out of the back of a truck. A crate with a cat inside also fell out. The cat is okay and doing well.
Callahan says it happened at milepost 67, two miles past the Towanda service area. She's not sure if it was northbound or southbound.
Since no one has come forward to claim the cat, a trooper with young children took her home. Callahan says the trooper promised to take pictures with the cat. They will post those to Twitter next week.
