32-year-old biker and sheetmetal worker Pat Doody recently rescued a kitten while riding cross country from Nevada to New Jersey. The South Jersey resident and early Volkswagen fan found the kitten at a gas station and named it “Party Cat.” The cat now lives with Doody and has seen a vet.

“I was at this truck stop getting gas, and this little guy just needed help,” he told Revzilla. “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.”

“I was coming back from Born Free in California, and we had made it to Nevada”
