CASTLE PINES, Colo. (KKTV) - A wayward kitty found himself in a perilous spot Thursday morning.

The cat had wandered onto I-25 just outside of Denver in the Castle Pines area -- right smack in the middle of the morning rush hour.

Luckily for the feline, he hadn't used up his nine lives just yet!

Thirty minutes later, State Patrol tweeted it was a successful rescue.

Here's hoping for a speedy recovery -- and a lot less adventure in the future!
