Pet of The Week

Some Newport Beach residents were surprised to see a 4-week-old kitten bounce from beneath the tarp of a moving flatbed truck.

All wondered if there were more kittens aboard, but they are thankful that Max, the tabby kitten, was rescued.

As the rescuers sought help, Max got painfully hungry. It took the family a few hours to find help with Community Animal Network, which provided an immediate warm bottle at weigh-in.

Anyone that is interested in helping bottle-feed Max, please call (949) 759-3646 or email

An earlier version listed the wrong phone number.

See rescued animals from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Fashion Island, sponsored by Russo's Pet Experience.

To help feed the kitties, mail your tax-deductible checks to: Community Animal Network, P.O. Box 8662, Newport Beach, CA 92658, Tax ID 33-0971560.
