To up your faith in humanity today:
A female motorcyclist saves a little ginger kitten from a busy intersection after the kitty in question seemingly falls off the undercarriage of a passing car. She ends up keeping him and naming him Skidmark, Skids for sort.

Her video is quickly getting views and she was also acknowledged by GoPro, the makers of her helmet, and Honda, the makers of her bike, on the video in question (apparently GoPro is sending her a package for her heroic act).

This whole thing makes me much happier in humanity. A few days ago my faith in humanity was kind of dwindling, but this made it skyrocket once again. As a cat lover and animal lover I personally applaud the efforts of anyone who is willing to go in harm's way to save one. Sadly, some people are cruel enough to run over defenseless little kittens. Thank you, rider, for your vigilance, for saving this cute kitten in this act of heroism :)

0:13 Magical kitten arrives from under the red car. Note how many cars just drive right over it, as if they can't see it.

I wonder for how long it was holding on under there.

Well a few days ago, my aunt decide to jump out the car to get a puppy and stop it from getting hit by a car. Then she brought it up to the veterinarian to get help with bloodsucker fuckers. Now I adopt the puppy and I am dealing with the nightmare of the bloodsucker fuckers. I swear it look like a fungus infection or ant army.

That lady is awesome. If i ever meet her, I will give her a big hug, because not many people would do that for a kitten.

Saw this one earlier on 9gag. But seriously, this reminds me of me when I accidentally dropped my keys while crossing the street.

My heart was sinking when I saw that little thing almost get hit a few times. We've stopped to save turtles from the middle of the road. I'm sure I'd stop for a kitten. If that kind of thing raises your spirits, then you'd appreciate this.

I saw this in the news this morning and I have to say it made me smile. There are still good people out there
