Have you ever caught yourself holding your breath without even realizing that you’re doing it? That was my experience watching this video of a small kitten trapped on what appears to be a busy highway.
The video begins with the little guy sliding and tumbling along the street, perhaps having fallen out of the first vehicle seen in the video. This poor cat, paralyzed with fear, is unable to move as the traffic blazes on by. There are multiple close calls, during which legitimately thought I was about to watch this small kitten get plastered all over the highway. Oncoming vehicles swerve to avoid the terrified feline, but I figured it was only a matter of time before you would no longer be able to say this cat has nine lives.
However, just as all hope seems lost for our hero, someone finally decides to stop their vehicle and lend a helping hand. A man hops out of the vehicle and picks up the frightened cat with just one hand. With the kitten in tow, the man drives out of frame, never to be seen again.
Cut to black. Cue credits. Okay, so it all sounds a little overdramatic when you say it like that, but this is the kind of everyday hero that we take for granted! He deserves a little recognition I would say.
Mystery kitten rescuer, whoever you are, you have our gratitude for not allowing this breathless tale to end in tragedy.
