One was discovered Wednesday night, but the other suffered through the night on the Portland bridge before another good Samaritan rescued her. They are being treated at Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital.
"We're testing them both for feline leukemia and feline AIDS. And after they get that OK, he'll be ready to go," Dr. Paul Chauvin told KOIN News 6.
The male (pictured) is ready for vaccinations and then will be up for adoption. The woman who rescued the female hopes to keep her after the kitten recovers from surgery and more serious injuries.

Kitten thrown out of car window is euthanized
In a sad ending, one of the kittens thrown out of a car window on the Fremont bridge has been put down.
The kitten was euthanized overnight Friday after doctors determined major surgery wouldn't help him recover. The kitten's brother who was also thrown out of the car window has been adopted.
A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the person responsible.
