Woman Leaps Off Motorcycle To Save Tiny Kitten

"Jesus Christ, come on," an impatient voice on a Go-Pro video says over footage of a red light at an intersection.

Suddenly: A gasp, and "Oh my god! Stop! Stop!"

A hand comes into the frame, waving frantically at oncoming traffic.

The biker behind the camera leaps off her motorcycle and lunges toward rushing vehicles.

She zeroes in on an orange speck in the road. Coming closer, it's revealed as a tiny orange kitten.

The woman scoops up the terrified kitten and rushes to the side of the road, handing the kitten to a concerned woman standing by.

"I don't know who she belongs to!" the worried bystander yells, as the biker sprints back into the intersection to get the bike she abandoned there.

"Oh my god," she says, back at the median, as the little orange kitten is shaking and lets out a squeaky "meow."

"You can just put her in my helmet for now," the biker says to the bystander.

"If you don't take her, I'll take her to work," the bystander offers.

But it's pretty clear the motorcyclist is already in love with the little orange bundle she at first mistook for a leaf. "No I'm going to take her," says the biker. "You're ok now sweetie," she says to the tiny kitten.

According to Michigan's FOX 17, she named the kitten Skidmark, and took her in. See Skidmark now, all safe and sound.
