Kelley Lawrence Peters was on her way to do one good deed when the opportunity to do another was right in front of her.

She is the founder of The Kitty Krusade, also known as Justin, Fire Survivor, so she has already dedicated her life to saving felines in distress.

 

Kelley was driving to a shelter to take in a kitten who was injured and would likely be put down. While on the highway, she spotted what looked like another cat laying motionless on the shoulder.

She told Love Meow:

 

I did a double take… pulled over immediately. Sure enough it's a 6-8 week old kitten eyes shut from [an Upper Respiratory Infection] and motionless.

 

She called out to her and the baby managed to lift her head to show there was some fight still left in her.

 

Kelley preceded to scoop her up and take her with her. In the car she decided to name her, Dave, because at the time she thought she was a boy.

How the kitten got on a very busy six lane highway, with barrier walls… I don't know. How no one stopped to help her. I don't know. But I'm honored she allowed me to bring her to safety.

 

Despite being sick and starving, Dave managed to purr in thanks to her rescuer. Kelley continued on and picked up Mia, the cat from the shelter with a shattered pelvis.

The two cats are in the best hands and on their way to recovery. It's been three weeks since Kelley rescued Dave and Mia, but both are doing much better and healing from their injuries.

 

[Dave's] eyes have cleared up and she plays all the time. She's a very happy kitten. Her next step… finding a forever home.
