In the middle of a bustle intersection in Oklahoma, a female motorcyclist spotted an orange kitten trying to escape the cars. At first glance, everybody thought it was just a leaf. A lot of trucks were passing by without noticing they could have ended up one’s life. Luckily, thanks to the biker Laney and her helmet camera, she quickly recognized that was a stray kitty. She suddenly signaled to the cars to stop, and she jumped off her bike to rescue the poor furball.

The cat looked quite confusing and afraid, but Laney gently scooped and gave him to the lady nearby who was also worried sick about the kitty.
“I’m just so thankful that the woman in the video, who I later learned that her name was Dana, was there. She looked like she was about to run and get him too.” – Laney stated.
As the biker handed the orange cat to the lady, Laney immediately turned back to her motorcycle that she left in the middle of the intersection. Then she put the kitty inside her helmet so that the cat was safe. Laney, after that, called her husband to drive them home, and they hilariously named him Skidmark. Skidmark later had a trip to the vet, and he was very healthy, even though he was quite small.
Laney also explained the reason why stray cats usually hid under the car engine.
“I heard it’s very common, especially once it starts getting cold, for stray cats to climb up into the engine block or somewhere underneath a car to stay warm, so Skidmark probably was there and just jumped out.” – The kind-hearted biker said.
“He is just so, so lucky. I’m just glad that he’s OK, and he’s been doing well. He is a very energetic kitty.” – She continued.
