Humane society officials in Nebraska are amazed and concerned about an incredible video shot by a family driving on an interstate.
The video shows a van driving at highway speeds, with a cat holding on to the roof.
“My daughter says there’s a cat on that van, and I was like oh no, that’s a raccoon. My husband’s pulling up closer and I’m like, oh my god, no, that’s a cat.”
Ronda Rankin and her family captured this bizarre scene Friday night on Interstate 480 between Martha and Farnam streets.
“It looked really scared, like, what the heck is going on?” asked Rankin.
So, they had to let the cat out of the bag.
“I said, ‘there’s a cat on your roof,’ and I keep saying, ‘a cat on your roof.’ Then she looks at me and she’s like, ‘oh my God.’ She looks startled, and so immediately they slow down,” explained Rankin.
Rankin says she saw the van pull over before it was out of sight.
“What happened? Is it their cat? Did it jump off? Were they able to get it?” wonders Rankin.
The Nebraska Humane Society wants to know, too.
“We have never seen a video like that before,” said Mark Langan, Nebraska Humane Society.
And although it may look like a wild cat, NHS says it is likely it is somebody’s pet.
“How that cat held on at high speeds like that is amazing,” said Langan. “I want to know what happened to the cat. People in Omaha want to know what happened to the cat. Lets find out what happened to this poor cat.”
