It’s considered bad luck for a black cat to cross your path, but the only thing this black cat was unlucky for was itself…almost.

During the WEC race at Bahrain, the woefully lost cat look determined to cross the circuit at turn 12, before apparently realising it didn’t stand a chance against a field full of fur-ocious race cars and trotting back to the kitty litter.

Luckily it was well away from the racing (fe)line so it didn’t get harmed, but it was enough for the race director to paws for thought and call a brief yellow flag before it finally got meow-t of the way.
