Actress and "The View" co-host Whoopi Goldberg has adopted a kitten rescued from a New York bridge.

The kitten was tossed from a moving car on New York City's Verrazano Bridge in July. An Animal Care & Control officer who happened to be driving on the bridge witnessed the kitten being thrown.

Goldberg said she met the kitten, named Vinny, on "The View." She posted a video of the feline on her Facebook page grooming himself and batting a feather toy with his paw.

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."
