Country star Miranda Lambert saved the life of a precious baby kitty this weekend after her husband spotted the little guy wandering dangerously on a highway in Texas.
The ‘Tin Man’ singer shared the unbelievable story on Instagram including photos of the tiny kitten after the couples stopped and picked up the adorable stray cat.
“Two-lane highway in Texas, speed limit 70. Brendan slows down and does a U-turn… Me to B: “why are you turning around? “ B to me: “there’s a kitten in the road and I knew you would kill me if I saw it and didn’t stop.” Well, I guess the rescue ways are rubbing off on him. ??” she began.
The country star explained her and husband, Brendan McLoughlin decided to adopt the baby kitten on the spot and have him join them on the trek back to their home in Nashville, TN.
“We stopped at mom and dads on the way home. Dad has a new bestie. This kitten rode 9 hours back to Nashville with us and 3 dogs and was such a champ. He is 4-5 weeks old and weighs 14 Ounces. ??. ” she said.
As for what the country star decided to name the little guy…
“Y’all welcome Tequila the kitten to the family! #tequiladoes,” she posted on IG. Now that’s a cool name!
Last month, the country singer announced she was hitting the road in a brand new Airstream trailer with her husband, after COVID-19 shut down most touring for musicians.
“When people ask me questions about all the traveling I’ve done, my answer is pretty much the same every time. “ I’ve been everywhere but I haven’t seen much of anything. “ I’ve been touring for 19 years and most times we just roll in, play our show, and roll to the next town. I’ve only gotten to spend some real-time in a few of the places I’ve been. After spending these last few months at home ( a much-needed break and time to nest❤️) I realized something. Just because I can’t travel and play shows doesn’t mean I can’t travel and make music,” she wrote on IG news to photos of the couple’s new camper!

She continued, “I have the most amazing travel companion, my husband, and we decided to add a family member. Y’all Meet “The Sheriff. “ A 2020 Airstream Globetrotter. I’ve been a vintage trailer collector for years and this is my very first new one. I’m letting go of a few vintage to make room for adventure in this silver gem!”
Well, it appears Miranda’s life on the road just put her in a perfect position to save this kitten’s life!
Welcome home, Tequila!
