Cyclist Stuffs Lost Kitten In His Shirt And Pedals Her To Safety

She thanked him with kisses.

Helping an animal in need always comes as its own reward — but this kindhearted man who rescued a kitten got a few sweet kisses in return.

And it's easy to see why she would be so grateful.

Brazilian cyclist Viitor Fonseca was out for a ride recently when he happened upon a kitten who was apparently in need of a helping hand. Rather than pass the baby feline by and leave her fate up to chance, Fonseca decided to let her tag along with him.

With no better option for carrying the little cat, Fonseca found a place for her in his shirt. And as this viral video posted to his Facebook page shows, she was more than delighted that he'd stopped to help.

Fonseco tells The Dodo that he was later able to find the kitten a new home nearby. Their sweet bicycle ride together, meanwhile, is likely something neither will soon forget.
