Rob Acuña Jr. was driving back home after a long and tiring day at work and at one point he though he noticed two tiny eyes looking at him.
As he was really exhausted, he believed he only imagined it so he continued driving. But he felt he wasn’t at easy and decided to get back there just to make sure it wasn’t an animal stuck on the busy road. For if it was, it certainly needed someone to step in and help.
“I noticed a little bump on the freeway wall that just happened to look like a little face as I drove by,” Acuña told The Dodo. “I honestly thought I was seeing things since it had been a long day and was so tired.”
This time, he was driving carefully because he didn’t want to miss those tiny eyes he believed gazed at him before.
That’s when he spotted a fur ball stuck between two slabs of concrete lining on the freeway. It was a little kitten that was obviously frightened and confused. He believed it was abandoned and rushed to take it in his hands.
Acuña grabbed it just on time, before it jumped off the overpass.
Acuña took the sweet animal home and his family was more than happy to foster it and take care of it until it was adopted through Southern Comfort Animal Rescue. They learned the kitty was a female and named her Pepper.
He put the rescue on tape. You can look at it below.
