A Russian man demonstrated a level of compassion and decency that we wish all humans would live up to when he stopped on a busy road to save the life of a poor, defenseless kitten.
In a CCTV video, a tiny kitten is seen lying in the middle of a busy road, narrowly avoiding ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ time and time again as multiple vehicles pass by without stopping to get the kitten out of harm’s way.
A motorist spotted a cat sᴛʀᴀɴᴅᴇᴅ on a busy highway and then he spotted something white on the road. At first, he thought it was a piece of plastic. But as he got closer, he noticed pointy ears — it looked like a cat.
“I was driving in JB with my Son towards Danga Bay (recreational park in Malaysia) when I spotted this kitty sᴛʀᴀɴded along the center divider of the highway couldn’t stop immediately so I had to make a round trip again to rescue this poor baby,” he said.
The steady stream of traffic continues completely uninterrupted while the poor, terrified kitten tries to make it to the side of the road. Masuri slammed on the brakes. Traffic roared past and drivers beeped, but Masuri was undeterred — he leaped out of the car and hurried over to the cat, who was pressed against the concrete barrier, shaking with fear.
“It was traumatized and covered in dirt,” Masuri, cofounder of Kitty Konnexion Community, an organization that helps stray cats in Singapore and Malaysia, told. “[The cat’s] body was trembling but it didn’t put up any struggle or even try to run away from me.”
Masuri picked up the cat, whom he named Danga Boy, and put him into the back seat of the car. Danga Boy meowed loudly and hid under the seat, but he also seemed relieved to be off the highway, according to Masuri.
Masuri has no idea how Danga Boy got on the highway in the first place, but he had a theory. Whatever had happened to Danga Boy had resulted in a ғʀᴀᴄᴛᴜʀᴇᴅ leg — it was so bad, that Danga Boy couldn’t move his leg at all.
Masuri drove the cat straight to a veterinary clinic, where Danga Boy has since been getting treatment.
