Even if cats have nine lives it’s still nothing short of a miracle that this kitten stranded on a highway survived. The hero of the day is a man on a motorbike who stops and rescues this cat – we don’t even want to think about what could’ve happened otherwise.

Found In the Middle of a Highway

The hero in this story doesn’t come in on a white horse, but rather he is on two wheels. The man was riding along a highway near Mons, Belgium, when he spotted a terrified little ginger cat lying in the middle of the highway.

The Rescue

The man on the motorbike realizes that this kitty is in need of rescue and immediately pulls off to the side. He stops the oncoming traffic and picks up the scared cat who’s trembling from the life-threatening situation it has just been saved from.

Another Hero Arrives

Another driver has also stopped his car on the side of the road to see if he can be of help. Our initial hero says in French to the driver that he is allergic, but he is worried about the cat. The other man kindly decides to bring the cat with him in his car.

The End?

We don’t know if this cat found its way back to its family or if it continued to a loving foster home, all we know is that things wouldn’t have ended well if these two everday-heroes had not stepped in.

What’s more beautiful than people going out of their way to save an animal that’s lost its way?

Tiny acts of kindness have massive outcomes – in this case it most probably saved the life of this little cat. The world can be a really dangerous place for a lost pet, but thankfully the world is also full of people willing to help.

Stray Cats

Stray cats in Belgium are a significant concern, with many cities and towns facing growing populations. Efforts to manage the issue include Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programs, which aim to reduce numbers humanely. Local shelters and organizations work to rescue, sterilize, and rehome cats, while public awareness campaigns promote responsible pet ownership and discourage abandonment.

Why Sit There?

A stray kitten might be sitting curled up on a highway alone due to several reasons: it could be lost and disoriented, separated from its mother or littermates, or abandoned by its previous owner. The kitten might be seeking warmth on the road, unaware of the dangers posed by passing vehicles. Additionally, it could be too frightened or weak to move, highlighting its vulnerability and need for immediate assistance.

Animal Shelters

Belgium has a significant number of animal shelters distributed across the country. They provide medical care, vaccinations, and sterilization services. Many shelters operate on donations and volunteer support, working closely with local governments and animal welfare organizations. They also promote responsible pet ownership and run awareness campaigns to prevent animal abandonment and cruelty.
