A cat trapped on the Golden Gate Bridge was rescued without a scratch by California Highway Patrol officers in Marin on Saturday.

Apparently, it's true that cats have nine lives, which was evident after the cat was rescued from a median on the bridge without sustaining a single injury, according to People magazine.

CHP officers were determined to find the cat after they received reports that there was a stray cat stuck in the middle of the Golden Gate Bridge, CBS 5 noted.

The officers didn't find anything at first, but after doing a double take they saw a "little furry head popping out from inside of the movable median barrier that separates the northbound and southbound lanes," the station reported.

The officers had to block traffic briefly in order to rescue the golden kitten, who now goes by the name "Bridges."

The cat was taken to VCA Madera Pet Hospital.

Animal doctors bathed, examined and gave medication to the lucky kitten.

"We are so grateful for such a caring group of people who truly care about the wellbeing of an animal in need of some TLC," the Marin CHP said, according to CBS 5.

It's not yet clear as to how the cat got trapped on the bridge and managed to escape without a single scratch.

One of the officers is housing the rescue kitten until its owner is identified and found.
