    An in-flight video has captured the moment a pilot from Club ULM in French Guiana spots a terrified cat clinging onto the roof of his glider as it soars into the sky.

    It's a heartstopping moment as the woman passenger directly below it doesn't even notice until the last minute. If the pilot hadn't been so observant, the story could have been a very sad one. Luckily he did and landed quickly.

    Video at the link. In the photo below, look carefully to spot the cat's head on the roof, top right.

    I'm so glad the kitty got down safe. That was one scared kitty. Good thing it had 9 lives! I never let my 8 cats out of my house.

    I'm so glad the kitty is safe too. Poor thing! I'm surprised he didn't jump off when the engine was started on the ground.

    I'm sure glad that kitty wasn't declawed! OK, I'm assuming that he wasn't declawed. :)
