(CNN) - It might not have been a hot tin roof, but one cat found himself in a sticky spot, clinging to the roof of a van speeding down a highway.

A family caught the cat on camera as it clung to the roof of a van travelling 60 miles an hour down a Nebraska highway.

Fearing for the feline's life, they had to let the cat out of the bag.

"I said, 'there's a cat on your roof,' and I keep saying, 'a cat on your roof.' then she looks at me and she's like, 'oh my god.' she looks startled, and so immediately they slow down," said Ronda Rankin.

The cat's fate was not immediately known.
