A young motorcyclist in Oklahoma, US, stopped in the middle of a busy intersection to rescue a kitten that fell out of a moving car.
While she was waiting at the traffic lights she saw a little kitten fall from a red car that was moving across the intersection. She immediately stopped the traffic, jumped from her bike and carried the frightened kitty to safety.
She decided to name the cat Skidmark, and shared her story on Reddit: “Skids fell from that red car, and we decided to go to that place of business and ask who drives it to determine if it was her kitten, or a stray. But she was gone. I left my number, and haven’t heard back yet. My dilemma is, if she says the cat is hers, I am hesitant to release it back to her without seeing how this kitten is living. I don’t think I could live with myself thinking I gave this cat back to people who let it end up in the middle of the busiest road in town. Ya know?”
The young motorcyclist has had no response from the person in the red car and had decided that ‘Skids’ has found his forever home.
After taking him to the vets she said “All is good, he is 4 weeks old – 1lb. Has ringworm that he is getting treatment for. Slight scabby on his foot, but dealing fine. Skids is a trooper!”
Here’s an update video and you can see he’s doing fine. A big thumbs up to this caring motorcyclist!
