A chauffer has captured the adorable moment drivers stopped to let a clever cat use a pedestrian crossing in Dartford.

Not content with risking any of its nine lives, the feline was filmed carefully waiting for cars to slow down before crossing St Vincent's Road on Sunday afternoon.

Justin Scrutton, from Stone, caught the footage on his dashboard camera after taking his car to the valet.

The 44-year-old said as he slowed down to approach the pedestrian crossing he spotted the black and white cat waiting to cross.

He told News Shopper: “I just approached the zebra crossing and looked both sides as you do, in case there was a child.

“I thought is the cat going to run out? He was looking at me, waiting for me so I slowed down.

“Both cars stopped and the cat looked both ways, he thought ‘it’s my turn’ and crossed.”

After checking both directions, the safety conscious kitty trots across the road to the enjoyment of a passer-by.

Mr Scrutton, who runs his own transfer business Justin Time Travel, added: “He stayed in the line of the zebra crossing the whole way across.

“He has obviously done that before, it was very sweet.”
