The cat was videotaped by another driver clinging to the top of a minivan driven by its owners, who were traveling at 60 mph down an Omaha freeway last week, according to KETV.

Rebel’s owner, Michelle Criger, told the news station that the cat must have been on the roof for at least 2 miles before a motorist finally alerted her and her boyfriend that they had a cat on top of their vehicle.

She said when they pulled over on Interstate 480 and saw the cat, they realized it was their 2-year-old feline Rebel.

“When I got him off the roof of the van, he wasn't scared at all,” Criger told KETV. “He wasn't shaking, heart racing, nothing. We were more scared than him,” she said.

Criger said the cat, which was just fine after the wild ride, is living up to its name.

“He takes off, does what he wants,” she said. “He's a rebel. He does everything he wants to do.”

Rebel’s owner said she’s definitely learned one thing from the experience: to always check both on top and underneath the van before she drives off.
