A kitten was rescued after police shut down a busy Massachusetts highway


A kitten found walking along a busy Massachusetts highway was rescued by a few caring state police troopers who shut down traffic for it.

Police video shows the kitten walking along the side of the road as cars drive by.

Massachusetts State Police posted photos of the kitten Sunday, saying "this little gal decided to play a little hide and seek" in the Ted Williams Tunnel in Boston.

Sgt. Bob Dateo made the call to shut down traffic and the Animal Rescue League of Boston quickly brought the kitten to safety.

Although she's safe now, police said the kitten looks like she's been through a lot.

"She has lost quite a bit of fur on her tail from some sort of burn," Massachusetts State Police wrote on Facebook. "Her prognosis is good however, and she will be up for adoption soon, when she is medically cleared."

Now, police said they just need ideas on what to name the kitten.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
