Driver Rescues Terrified Cat Stranded On Highway

This driver proved it’s not just cats who have nine lives after he stopped on a busy highway to rescue a feline stranded in the central reservation.

New York city council member Francisco Moya was driving along the Long Island Expressway in Queens, New York, when he spotted the cat perched on the central reservation.

The 44-year-old Democrat came off the highway to change direction and pull up alongside the animal with his hazard lights on at around 2:30pm on May 18.

Jumping out of his Mercedes, he managed to grab the grateful cat and place him in the passenger-side footwell.
