What a hair-raising rescue: Man stops on busy highway to save kitten

If a cat has nine lives, this lucky kitten certainly tested the saying after becoming stranded in front of oncoming traffic on a Kaliningrad highway in Russia, on Thursday.

A security camera captured how the kitten was picked up by a kind driver from the middle of the very busy Aleksandra Nevskogo Street. In total, the little cat spent four minutes in the middle of the busy road.

In the CCTV footage provided by the state public institution, the kitten was seen huddled and terrified as cars and trucks zoomed past, missing it by inches.


A Russian newspaper identified the rescuer as a man named Denis. He told the newspaper that the kitten was helpless and wasn't able to eat by himself. With the help of some friends, they managed to find a home for the kitten.
