The couple revealed on Instagram that they found the kitten on a recent road trip.

Brandon was traveling 70 mph on a two-lane, one-way highway in Texas when he suddenly slowed down to make a U-turn.

Lambert asked, “Why did you make a U-turn?” I said.

He replied to his wife, ” Because there was a kitten in the road and I knew if I didn’t stop to look at it, you would kill me.”

“That must have influenced his rescue,” he said. She joked.

The two quickly grabbed the kitten off the road and pulled it safely into the truck.
