When a bicyclist comes upon a kitten, he can't bear to leave her behind so he takes her on her first bike ride. 

Brazilian cyclist Viitor Fonseca spends a lot of time on his bike, but one particular ride is sure to stand out in his mind for years.

During a recent ride, Fonseca encountered a stray kitten who clearly needed some help. But he was on his racing bike, which has no baskets or other places to carry a kitten.

Not wanting to leave the kitten behind, Fonseca improvised, putting the kitten in the only place he could think of where she'd be safe for the ride.

It seems that the kitten was quite content being tucked into Fonseca's shirt. Maybe she knew she was being rescued? Maybe she just liked the feel of the wind in her hair? Who knows, but the video that Fonseca captured of the trip is absolutely adorable.

Olha ele ai ??❤??

As if this story weren't delightful enough, it even has a happy ending. Fonseca was able to find the kitten a new home. But we're pretty sure that neither of them will ever forget that special bicycle ride.
