Kitten Rescued From Busy Russian Highway in the Nick of Time

If you’re a cat lover, be warned, this viral video of a man rushing into traffic in order to save a kitten from certain tragedy may cause heart palpitations.

The clip, which hails from Russia, shows a tiny kitty finding its way into the middle of a bustling multilane highway.

As the small feline edges closer to moving cars, a very good Samaritan stops driving and rushes from his own vehicle in order to scoop up the animal just in the nick of time.

The man cradles the shaken, but safe kitten, as another motorist pulls over to see what happened.

The heroic man then hands off the kitten to the concerned passerby, who hopefully, gave this very lucky feline a new home—far away from any traffic.

Watch, hold your breath, and smile because the right human was there at the right time.
