Firefighters thought she was stuck but it turns out the cat was just enjoying the beautiful view.

The cat appeared unable to make its way back so fire-rescue units took action with assistance from the Florida Department of Transportation. Once they got close enough to grab her she took off back across the bridge.

To prevent an additional rescue or tragedy, rescuers did not attempt to apprehend the cat in fear of it jumping from the bridge or running into traffic.
