A frightened feline was rescued from the Lincoln Tunnel early Wednesday after being stranded on – what else? – the catwalk.
Maeghan Grant, a field supervisor in the tunnel's Operations Unit, traveled nearly the length of the tunnel’s center tube with trainee Christopher Lizotte following a motorist’s call before finding the cold kitten about 400 feet from the Manhattan exit, authority spokeswoman Lenis Rodrigues said.
The stray was taken to the Lincoln Tunnel’s New York Emergency Garage, where Tunnel & Bridge Agent Christopher Kerrigan provided water and a box for a trip back to the administration building in Weehawken.
The New Jersey Humane Society collected the cat, who may already have a new home to go to – Kerrigan’s – once he’s examined and cleared.
In case you’re wondering, the cat was given a name.
Check the photos. A clue: Consider where he was found.
