I was on my way home from work when I reached a junction with traffic lights. It was somewhere near sri Petaling where Carrefour is. Anyway, as I was navigating my way around the line of cars ( I ride) I saw this kitten just underneath a car right in front of the rear wheel on the right side. I slowed down and tried to see if it was stuck or dead or something but no! It must have hidden underneath that car while the traffic light was Red.
I stopped and waved at the front passenger side of the car owner. As expected they must have either thought I was a scammer asking them to buy gold coins and what not. But they finally wind down the car window as I was trying to communicate through my full face helmet “Cat, cat under your car!” then I changed to “Kucing! Kucing di bawah kereta lah!”. Driver asked me “Hidup lagi ka??”
The poor driver got out of his car and ducked down to find a golden color kitten miaow-ing on top of it’s tiny lungs. We both tried to shoo it away but it just shift towards the middle of the car. Finally he used his umbrella to like dig it out. The frightened kitten ran away and went underneath this Mercedes Benz smack right in front of her car tire!! Come on??? The traffic light turned Green and added some excitement. Just as the lady driver of the Merc shifted gears, I managed to tap on her bonnet and frantically tried to tell her there is a cat under her car and I was still wearing my helmet.
I saw the kitten ran away under another car. I think it was a BMW. The driver went out too checking under his car. This time it was gone. By now a few cars started honking and the situation was getting tense. I can hear the cat miaow-ing again. But it seems to be coming from the little drainage hole at the side of the road. I was sure it went inside that hole.
I was blocking traffic and so was these other two courageous men. At the time we all decided to make a move. The first guy even thanked me???
Anyways I sure hope that brave kitten haven’t used up all it’s 9 lives. Because once it is out from that hole there’s no guarantee that it will be safe from harm. That particular stretch is busy with cars at that hour and I doubt another motorcyclist or motorist will be as helpful to that poor fellow.
God Speed little pussy cat!
