Driver spots tiny kitten on the side of the road, ends up rescuing 13

Robert Brantley was leaving work when he spotted a tiny kitten on the side of the road. He stopped to save it – only to have twelve more little ones suddenly run out and surround him.

PIONEER, La. – This might be the most adorable ‘ambush’ ever.

It started as a typical day for Robert Brantley, who was heading to the shooting range after work when he spotted a black and white kitten in the grass on the side of the road.

“The wife has been wanting a cat for the farm; figured I’d stop and rescue the thing,” he wrote.

Brantley backed up his vehicle and began recording a video on his cell phone, expecting to capture just the one kitten.

As he grabbed the little one, barely bigger than his hand, six more kittens came bounding out of the grass toward him.

“Oh my gosh, there’s more!” Brantley could be heard exclaiming. “I can’t take you all!”

As the meowing kittens begin surrounding him, even more, can be seen running out of the wooded area toward Brantley, which he described as getting “ambushed [by] the mob.”

“We’ve got a kitten problem!” he said.

“Who would do this?”

By the end of the video, he resigns to the fact that he will be rescuing them all.

“I thought I was saving one. Hot diggety dog!” Brantley sighs.Kitten, Driver Spots Tiny Kitten on Side of the Road, ends up Rescuing 13

A second video shows what happened once he wrangled all the kittens into his car.

“I couldn’t keep up with them as I would throw one in and two would jump out,” he wrote. “So I had to close the door with the window down and funnel them in.”

Since posting the videos to his Facebook page, they have gone viral, with thousands praising him for saving the litter. He has been asking his followers for advice on caring for them as he works on finding homes for them.


However, Brantley says his family plans on keeping the first kitten he had stopped to rescue initially – and they’ve already named him “Scout.”
