Thankfully this dare-devil cat didn’t need to use one of its nine lives this caught stranded on the roof of a van travelling at 60 mph.
After footage was posted online, people began to worry what happened to the cat.
😱 WHOA! A friend shared this video of a cat riding on top of this van going 60 mph on I-480 between Martha & Farnam in Omaha Friday around 8:30 p.m. People in the van had no idea! "They were shocked and scared! They immediately pulled over.” Anyone know what happened to cat? 🙀 pic.twitter.com/b4xWxaqu3W

According to KETV, the drivers had no idea the cat, named Rebel was on their roof. It was only after a passerby in another vehicle noticed the cat stranded on the roof did they pull up and try to get the owners attention. Rebel hung on until the van slowed down and pulled over.
In the video, the cat can be heard meowing, possibly panicked at his current predicatment.
🙀 This is “Rebel,” the curious cat going viral for riding on top of a van at 60 mph down an Interstate in Omaha without owner knowing. He was not hurt & van belongs to owner. #catonvan #rebelthecat 😻

Luckily, Rebel sustained no injuries and is doing fine. However, he probably has a new outlook on life.
