A clever cat has been caught on camera displaying some very human-like behaviour.

Footage caught on chauffeur Justin Scrutton’s dashcam on Sunday afternoon shows him approaching a crossing in Dartford, Kent to find a feline pedestrian waiting patiently.

Once he, and the car in the opposite lane have come to a stop, the cat confidently steps onto the crossing, and walks to the other side of the road, where he continues his journey.

Applauding, 44-year-old Scrutton, who runs transfer business Justin Time Travel, exclaims ‘spot on!’

Speaking to the News Shopper newspaper, he explained: “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.

“He stayed in the line of the zebra crossing the whole way across. He has obviously done that before, it was very sweet.”
