NEW YORK (AP) - A kitten tossed from a moving car on New York City’s Verrazano Bridge now has a name _ and a celebrity “mom.”

Whoopi Goldberg has posted a video of Vinny on her Facebook page. It shows the adorable gray kitten grooming himself and batting a feather toy with his paw.

Vinny was rescued in July. An Animal Care & Control officer who happened to be driving on the bridge witnessed the kitten being thrown.

Goldberg notes on her page that she met Vinny on the ABC talk show “The View,” where she’s a co-host.

Goldberg says her other cat, Oliver, is “not too happy” about the new family member.

But she adds: “I think he’ll get Oliver to come around sooner than later.”
