Miranda Lambert's love for animals has officially rubbed off on her husband, Brendan McLoughlin.
Over the weekend, the country star turned to Instagram to share a photo of an adorable stray kitten she and her husband rescued near a highway in Texas. Lambert explained in the caption how her husband was actually the one who noticed the kitten and decided to turn around.
"Two lane highway in Texas, speed limit 70. Brendan slows down and does a U-turn," Lambert writes, as she recalled asking her husband, "Why are you turning around?"
"There’s a kitten in the road and I knew you would kill me if I saw it and didn’t stop," Brendan told her. "Well I guess the rescue ways are rubbing off on him. 👏👏," Lambert added before going on to share a few more details about their road trip home.
"We stopped at mom and dads on the way home," she writes. "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!"
Tequila's rescue appears to be at the end of a recent road trip. Last month, the couple revealed their plans to travel across the country in their new 2020 Airstream Globetrotter.
"Just because I can’t travel and play shows doesn’t mean I can’t travel and make music," she said at the time.
The first part of their trip was from Nashville to New York. The couple made several stops along the way in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, Virginia, and Pennsylvania.
"It was a nice change of pace. Something about the highway is calming, and at the same time keeps you completely focused," she shared, adding that she likes "to drive a lot because most of my adult life I’ve been driven around on a tour bus to play music."
