Thanks to Whoopi Goldberg, what almost ended up as another tragic tale of animal cruelty turned into a fairy tale ending for a kitten who was reportedly tossed out of a car window on New York City's Verrazano Bridge early last month.
After being rescued by an Animal Care and Control officer that happened to be driving by at the time, the kitten's harrowing story went viral, even landing him a fateful guest spot on "The View." Based on the clip above, it was clearly love at first sight for the pair, or should I say first cuddle, and while 140 people vied for the opportunity to give the tiny survivor a forever home, Goldberg eventually was granted the honor.
The Academy Award winner took to her Facebook page earlier this week to post a short video of the now two-month-old kitten, and confirmed the news by saying, "For all of you who remember me on "The View" meeting Verrazano, the kitten who was thrown out the window of a car on the Verrazano Bridge. I adopted him and I was finally able to take him home. His nickname is "Vinny". Oliver's not too happy but Vinny is having the time of his life. I think he'll get Oliver to come around sooner than later."
Goldberg is referring to her Russian Blue cat Oliver, who Verrazano joins in her home as a fursibling.
