Kitten May Have 9 Lives, But He Definitely Has 2 Big Friends

Photo Special to the Sun

A couple of weeks ago, two Greene County men never dreamed they would become animal rescuers. Thanks to the efforts of these men, a little kitten's life was saved.

After driving his large compactor truck from St. James to Greystone, Ronnie Brockwell, of the Greene County Solid Waste Department, discovered a tiny kitten on the back of the truck between the frame and the truck rails.

Apparently the kitten had hitched a ride and traveled all of those miles on the back of the truck.

Noticing that the kitten appeared to have a severely injured leg, Brockwell alerted his co-worker, Kreston Seaton, who promptly brought the kitten to the Greeneville-Greene County Humane Society (GGCHS) to receive much-needed care.

Upon delivering the kitten to Amy Bowman, GGCHS manager, Seaton informed her that he had decided the kitten deserved the name "Traveler,"

We have to agree that this is a very appropriate name!

Staff veterinarian Dr. Barbara Hodges examined the smoky-gray kitten and discovered that he had a broken rear leg.

Traveler's leg was splinted and he is now recuperating at the Humane Society and doing very well.

Brockwell and Seaton have both stopped by the GGCHS to visit Traveler and check on him.

We're all very thankful that these two men did the honorable thing and rescued this defenseless being.

Both men have grown attached to Traveler and are hoping that he will get a loving home as soon as his leg has healed.

We will let everyone know when Traveler is ready for adoption and post pictures on our Facebook page.
