Miranda Lambert & Her Husband Rescue A Cute Abandoned Kitten - Pictures Here!
Miranda Lambert and husband Brendan McLoughlin responded heroically when they spotted a lost kitten on the side of a highway. Meet the kitten, named Tequila, and read the rescue story below!
Brendan McLoughlin's sharp eye saved the day for an abandoned kitten in need.
McLoughlin and his wife, country musician Miranda Lambert, had hit the road on a Texas highway when he suddenly pulled a U-turn to rescue the kitten. Lambert recounted the story on her Instagram account, where she shared a series of photos of the kitten and revealed who's adopting him.
"Two lane highway in Texas, speed limit 70. Brendan slows down and does a U-turn," she wrote. "Why are you turning around?" she asked, to which he responded, "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," Lambert wrote, referencing her MuttNation Foundation and its work with animal rescue and shelters.

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. 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. . Y'all welcome Tequila the kitten to the family! #tequiladoes @muttnation
It appears as though Lambert's love of animals runs in the family, as she revealed that her parents are taking in the kitten.
"We stopped at mom and dads on the way home. Dad has a new bestie," Lambert's post added. "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."
And the name reveal: "Y'all welcome Tequila the kitten to the family!"
Lambert's Instagram post shows her, Brendan, and her father Rick posing with Tequila, the roadside rescue kitten.
Miranda Lambert and husband Brendan McLoughlin were married in 2019
Lambert and McLoughlin, an NYPD officer, married in January of 2019, and, as Lambert puts it, her love of animals is also clearly "rubbing off on him."
As People reported, the couple may have picked up Tequila on the way home after a road trip with stops in New York, Oklahoma, and Texas. Lambert and McLoughlin acquired a new RV in May, which they'd been using to visit the southern and eastern U.S. states.

Sunday thoughts. 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. 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. ( thanks @rocketcityrv ) 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! I don't like change but I'm learning to embrace it. Until I get get back on Elvira and tour, I'll be pulling this rig all over the country. I know that seeing the world through the windshield again will bring creative vibes. #highwayvagabonds #livinlikehippies #BandMetour
