This woman was driving on a busy highway when she saw a tiny kitten run right in front of her car. She pulled over, and the kitten ran straight into her car’s undercarriage. She looked and tried to get him out, but after 10 minutes of searching, she had to move her car, so she drove 25 minutes home. When she got home, she realized that he was still under the car.

“I’m not sure how he hung for his life for 25 minutes straight but he did,” the TikTok text read.

After hours of trying to get the scared kitten out of the car, a roadside service worker helped her catch him. He was exhausted and scared. Thankfully, @rescueforwinston was willing to put in the time and give him some TLC and he became the cutest little love bug she could have ever hoped for.

According to national estimates, approximately 6.3 million companion animals are abandoned and enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide every year. In the US alone over 5.4 million cats are killed on the side of the road. If you happen to notice a cat on the side of the road, whether or not the animal is injured, safely put on the hazard lights and pull your car completely off the road before attempting to rescue them, says the Humane Society.

Here are the full rescue tips that just may come in handy one day, and while you’re at it, sign this petition to demand all states make all animal abuse a felony now!
