A small kitten trapped on the movable median of the Golden Gate Bridge was saved Saturday afternoon by California Highway Patrol officers, CHP Marin posted on Facebook.

The cat was spotted around 2:50 p.m. Unable to find him on the first pass, CHP officers found him the second time around near the south tower. They blocked a lane of traffic.

One officer, identified in the post as Officer Smith, brought the animal to the VCA Madera Pet Hospital in Corte Madera. Smith has decided to take temporary care of the cat, whom they’ve tentatively named Bridges. The animal hospital gave Bridges an examination and a bath, and did not charge Smith for the services, NBC Bay Area reported.

“No collar and no microchip made it impossible for us to locate an owner, so Officer Smith told them he would foster the little guy and nurse him back to health,” CHP Marin wrote on Facebook.

“If you happened to lose your little cat in the middle of the Golden Gate Bridge today, please give us a call or send us a message,” the post ends.
