Rare is it that you will find anyone with an ounce of compassion on Southern California freeways (seriously, everyone is always so angry!!!), but three heroes took time to help rescue a kitten that ran through traffic on the 60 Freeway in the Diamond Bar area on Sunday.

An off-duty sheriff’s lieutenant, Minh Dinh, and his spouse Jenny Ha, a retired lieutenant, spotted a woman, Cathy Chang, who sitting on a blanket in the emergency lane of the freeway. Chang told them that she saw a kitten running across the freeway and stopped her vehicle.

Dashcam video captured the kitten run across the freeway and under Chang’s car and into the engine.

Chang volunteers at a animal rescue and had cat food in her car that she tried to use to lure the cat out. When that didn’t work, Dinh searched for the cat and eventually spotted some light brown fur sticking out between the slats of the front grill.

Dinh, a self-described “weekend mechanic, unscrewed the panel connecting the undercarriage and bumper, reached behind the grill and grabbed the cat.

The cat was taken to Ontario Rescue in Montclair. It’s not known how the furry little creature ended up on the freeway.
