This is the moment a cat tumbled from the muffler of a car and narrowly missed being hit by another.

Luckily, the quick-thinking driver swerves out of the animal’s way.
The cat’s near-miss was shown in shocking slow-motion in a clip on YouTube, where one of the people behind the camera explained the cat was rescued from the road soon after the incident on August 21.

‘A car passed us that had something white hanging under it that looked similar to a package.
‘It turned out to be a cat that had been sitting on the muffler of the vehicle. It fell off the moving car onto the road. Miraculously it was not crushed.
‘I found it later, hidden between a pillar and the concrete fence. We took it to the veterinarian and were informed that he was healthy with only a bruise.’
