A cat in Denver, Colorado named Jack Spicer had his day turned upside down when two cars collided in his neighborhood. A video of the rescue cat has recently gone viral on TikTok, showing him standing on a wall and anxiously meowing as he watches the chaos unfold. The footage, which features Jack wearing a tartan jumper and yellow bandana, has garnered over 736,000 views and 220,000 likes.

According to Jack's owner, the cat was adopted from a humane society in rural Wisconsin after being abandoned in a house with two large dogs. This experience has given him some dog-like qualities, as stated by his owner.

Thankfully, Jack was not harmed by the car collision. However, outdoor cats are at risk of accidents, as highlighted by the People's Dispensary for Sick Animals. The UK-based charity warns that allowing cats to roam the streets can put them in danger. Young and unneutered cats are particularly vulnerable as they may wander further in search of a mate. Cats near busy roads or those who spend time outside at night are also at a high risk, as drivers may not see them in the dark.

To keep their pets safe, owners can take specific measures. In this situation, Jack was merely a concerned observer. TikTok users have praised him in the comments for being a vigilant neighborhood watch cat.

Some users have raised questions about his name. Jack Spicer was named after the American poet who believed his poems were received from Martians through radio waves. The cat's owner believes that cats have similar thoughts and experiences.

Jack Spicer, the Hollywood-born poet, claimed that his poetry was influenced by outside forces and that he acted as a "radio" picking up signals from an invisible world. He even jokingly attributed some of his work to "Martians."
