Great story Gino and shows a lot of compassion, where others would of euthanized the cat to put it out of its misery. Sorry to hear that you got injured and sick while trying to do a good deed. Seriously I was waiting for some kind of a different story ending with something about the Cat killer 's Revenge. I was wrong, never thought that it was a true story till I got to the end. Hope that you and the you saved fully recover.

Gino,
Very nice! Tell your doctor you would like to carry an Epi Pen, if you had this severe of a reaction, you need to keep one near by. It could save your life.

Wow amazing story. I can honestly say I would not have done what you did. Throw in the allergic reaction and medical expenses and it's definitely over the top....Great example to take away for us all.

Thank you! The nurse from the vet said she might keep her as she is so sweet and may need some attention for a while. She is about 3 months old and weighs 3 pounds. I named her Lucky but the nurse was calling her Gina. I asked where she got Gina from and she because you can't call a lilttle girl kitten Gino. I thought that was very sweet. I will let you know if she dosen't take her. I guess there is going to be some rehabilitation time.

Here is the link. I really got a lot of negative reactions when I posted it. Many people thought the guy was out of line driving 100 miles per hour. Mean while it was very late at night and the highway was pretty much emptey except for a few truckers. When it comes to animals I am very passionate- it is one of my biggest faults. If I was the guy in the video and it was one of my 3 boys dying, The cop would have had to have shot me to keep me there. But thats just me. I know laws are in place for a reason, you can't risk human lives for animals and all those other good reasons. I'm simply posting the video because i was asked to.

Exactly how is this a fault? You are a hero for saving that little kitten and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
