Scaredy cat took on a whole new meaning for a 4-week-old kitten recently rescued in the middle of Hwy. 380.
Setting out on his way to work, Farmersville resident Earl Stokes began driving toward Frisco Wednesday morning June 21.
Driving south on Hwy. 380 near Lexington Lodge, Stokes was on his mobile phone when he spotted something in the road as he passed over it.
“Honestly, I thought it was a baby possum,” he said. “I decided to turn around and pulled a U-turn.”
An animal lover at heart, Stokes said he has saved at least 20 turtles from roadway harm since moving to Farmersville eight years ago. He was prepared to do the same with the would-be possum only to find out it was a tiny baby kitten.
