Ozzie Guillen


So...remember Dan Ryan, found on the highway by Heather S.? How about Tinsel, found on the highway by Heather S.? Well readers, meet Ozzie Guillen...found on the highway by Heather S.

Heather wrote that "yesterday driving to school from work I drove by a tiny fluff in the middle of the Dan Ryan (again) at the 35th St Red Line stop. I knew it was a kitty b/c of two pefectly shaped teeny triangle ears sticking up. I of course panicked, got off at the next exit and did the route again. I spotted kitty and pulled over ...kitty was TINY and crying and just wandering around in the little 2-ft space he had between the L and traffic. Kitty was terrified and would start to walk toward me and a truck would go by and kitty would turn around and run the other way. Kitty eventually hunkered down with his back to me and I ran and scruffed him and put him in the car. I have absolutely no idea how this tiny kitten got where he did. He is maybe 4-5 wks old, still has little blue eyes and must have just been weaned, or maybe not yet. He was able to drink kitten formula last night without being bottle fed so we also tried some wet kitten food this morning which he gobbled up."

Because he was found near the White Sox stadium wearing a little black and white uniform, he is now known as Ozzie Guillen (if you don't understand this sentence, you are clearly not on the South Side of Chicago). As for Heather S....keep driving, baby.

I have a friend who is always stumbling across boxes of books on the street. Heather obviously has the same kind of karma, only with kittens!

Seriously, I love this story. I love when people take time out of their day to do the right thing. This cat would have not likely survived. He was meant for you to drive by him.
