CHP rescues kitten stuck in Golden Gate Bridge median

A kitten rescued from the middle of the Golden Gate Bridge on Saturday afternoon is apparently making good use of his nine lives.

At about 2:50 p.m., California Highway Patrol officers responded to a report from a concerned citizen that a kitten had been spotted in the middle of the bridge, the agency posted on its Facebook page.

Officers weren’t immediately able to spot the kitten, so they looped back around and gave the bridge another pass.

“As they approached the south tower on the bridge they noticed a little furry head popping out from inside of the movable median barrier that separates the northbound and southbound lanes,” the CHP wrote on its Facebook page.

The officers blocked a lane of traffic to exit their vehicle and rescue the kitten, which was quickly freed and taken into the car and to a veterinarian in Marin County.

The officers transported the kitten, which had no microchip or ID tags, to the VCA Madera Pet Hospital in Corte Madera, where the kitten received a bath and medical treatment.

One of the officers will care for the kitten, named Bridges, until the furry friend finds its forever home.

Anyone who has information about how the kitten ended up on the bridge is asked to call the CHP.
