This biker saved a kitten's life. Then, the two took a cross-country road trip together.
It’s a match made in motorcycle heaven!
A biker named Pat Doody was just starting a massive road trip when he stumbled upon a kitten in need of help. So he rescued the little guy, dubbed him Party Cat (awwww!) and then the two of them road-tripped across the U.S. together. It’s like Easy Rider meets The Aristocats. In other words, cool as heck and adorable as all get out.
Pat first discovered the kitty at a truck stop when he stopped for gas. As he told RevZilla from the road, the little kitten was injured and crying for 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.”
Hold up. He tucked the kitten inside his vest? Yes. Yes, he did. And it was every bit as precious as it sounds.
Party Cat actually really likes hanging out in Pat’s vest. He stays tucked inside when they’re on the road together. Which is a lot. Pat first found the kitten in Nevada, and their road trip didn’t end until they’d reached New Jersey, where Pat lives.
Now, of course, Party Cat lives there, too. He nibbled on tuna packets while they were traveling, but now that they’ve made it home, he’s eating proper cat food and has seen a veterinarian. His burns have also healed, no doubt helped by the Neosporin Pat lovingly applied as they traveled. Pat says, “His burns are pretty much all healed up except for the little spot on his lip…It looks a lot better and doesn’t seem to be bothering him.”
Looking good, Party Cat!
It warms our hearts that this unlikely duo found each other. We have a feeling Party Cat and Pat haven’t taken their last ride together. The next time Pat hits the road, we’re betting a certain little furball will be tucked snugly inside his vest. In the meantime, they’ll just continue taking adorbs selfies together. Like this one…
And this one.
According to Pat, Party Cat is super chill. In fact, he says, “I’ve never met a cat so calm.”
We have to agree with Pat. We’re not sure we’ve ever seen such a chill kitty. Then again, he’s got a lot to be grateful for. Welcome home, Party Cat. Welcome home.
