Salem was found in the middle of a roadway and taken in by a compassionate citizen who was driving by at the time. There's some speculation that he was dumped from a vehicle that was seen stopped nearby and caught on the rescuer's dashcam at the time of his discovery; that vehicle sped away when the rescuer approached. He was suffering with a serious upper respiratory infection and his eyes was terribly infected. You can see a photo of him when found at the link below. He is a happy, healthy, playful and sweet kitty, now, who is looking for his forever home!
