This is the moment firefighters gently coaxed a stranded kitten to safety after scaling a flyover in Indonesia to reach it.
Footage captured in West Java shows a firefighter encouraging the nervous feline towards him with cat food as the animal sits on the Bogor City Outer Ring flyover on November 30.
The tiny kitten initially scampers towards the firefighter before moving further away from him.
The firefighter then moves closer to the kitten and continues to shake the treat at it in a fresh attempt to draw the animal towards him.

After multiple attempts, the firefighter manages to capture the kitten before stepping onto the fire crane and making his way back to the ground, where more emergency crews are waiting for him.
Kristian Permana of the Bogor City Fire and Rescue Service said: ‘We received reports from residents who saw the cat. Fire and rescue officers deployed six personnel to the location.’
The specialists used a hydraulic ladder car to reach the kitten which was stranded on the structure above busy roads in the city.
Mr Perman added: ‘We had to persuade the kitten by using cat food. Finally we were able to save it.’

The kitten has now been taken to the Bogor City Fire and Rescue Office where it will be put up for adoption.
The scenes come just months after a stray kitten was rescued from a car engine by a Thai driver who heard the tiny cat meowing while he was on his way to work.
Settachet Guedchai heard the cat’s faint cries coming from his car while stuck in morning rush hour traffic in Bangkok during his 18-mile commute on October 21.
The baffled driver then followed the sound and was surprised to find a male kitten hidden in his engine.
Mr Guedchai was able to coax the frightened ginger cat to a spot where he could rescue it before reaching down and pulling the kitten out by the scruff of its neck.
