We have all been driving and seen an animal on the side of the road. Oftentimes it is too late for the animal to be saved. Sometimes, however, it’s not.

Ronda Carmer-Hannah and her toddler son saw such an animal on the highway. A gray cat, dubbed Highway, was lying there, near death. Carmer-Hannah brought her to a nearby veterinary clinic. After initial examination, it was discovered that the cat’s hind legs were broken. Given the cost of surgery to repair the injuries, the pain Highway was surely in and that she was a stray, it was suggested that euthanasia was the only option.

Robert Taylor, DVM, MS, Dipl. ACVS heard Highway purring, and realized that the cat touched everyone she met. He had to see if there was another option. After testing to see the exact damage, surgery became the best option. Dr. Taylor selflessly helped this helpless cat and saved her life. Highway is now in a permanent home with Carmer-Hannah.
