Belle, a kitten rescued after being left on the roadside on N.C. 130 the night of May 5, is all decked out in his blue bowtie and bell finery as he heals at his new home in Wilmington.
Kitten healing after roadside rescue

Heather Harrison was on her way home from work in Shallotte on May 5 when she saw the vehicle in front of her swerve around something at the side of the road.

Seconds later, she saw a tiny ball of fur trying to scoot farther back from the road, away from westbound traffic rushing past on N.C. 130 into Columbus County just before dusk.
