A motorcyclist on a cross-country trip saved a burned kitten and the pair rode together on the journey home.

Pat, the kitty’s hero writes: “I was coming back from Born Free in California, and we had made it to Nevada. I was at this truck stop getting gas, and this little guy just needed help. He was pretty badly burned, so I picked him up and tucked him inside my vest. We’re feeding him regularly now, so he’s doing better, even though he’s sort of living on the road until we get home.

“He’s been eating tuna fish out of those dry-foil packs you can buy, and his burns are pretty much all healed up except for the little spot on his lip. He’s so chill. He just hangs out in my vest when we get on the road. I’ve never met a cat so calm.”

Pat later named the kitty, Party Cat.

Pat and Party Cat did finish their journey when they arrived back at Pat’s home in New Jersey. Metro reports that Party Cat has a forever home with Pat and has been given a clean bill of health by the vet, the cat is going to be just fine!

As the photos here show, Party Cat’s burns were, fortunately, not widespread, severe or life-threatening. However the burned spots on his lip and nose can still be seen though.
