SURPRISE: Jactinta Hinton with the cat she rescued after it jumped from a moving car on Goondoon St. Nicky Moffat

SHE hates cats but on Thursday Jacinta Hinton turned cat rescuer when saw a furry feline jump out of a moving car.

Ms Hinton was having a coffee on Goondoon St with a friend when she noticed a car slow down and out of the window jumped a cat.

"It was weird. Obsure," she said, laughing.

"It's not something you see every day."

Ms Hinton said she really didn't like cats, but was nursing the animal lovingly while working out what to do.

She urged the owner to come forward, and said she would report it to the pound.

The black and white cat had been in white Mitsubishi mirage, driven by a woman, who seemed not to notice when the cat jumped out.

The car had p-plates and a baby seat in the back.

Ms Hinton was visiting from Rockhampton but said if she can't find the owner, she would have to take the cat back with her.
