"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.
