In May 2019 , two Texas officers were completing their reports on a shoplifting incident when a passerby came to the officers and asked for help. After Officers Adkins and Hillard were finished with the call, they headed out to their cars. As they were walking to the cars, a woman flagged them over and asked for their help. They heard meows coming from a car and he thought there were kittens trapped inside that may need help.
“They located the kittens inside the bumper where most likely the mother cat had placed them for some reason,” Jesse Minton, of the Arlington Police Department, told The Dodo.
The officers found two little kittens inside the bumper of the car.
“The owner of the car advised she did not own a cat and had no idea how the kittens got in there,” Minton said.
After making sure that the owner of the car didn’t own the little cats one of the officers, Joe Bob Adkins reached under the car and pulled carefully the little kittens, he also got help from Officer Hilliard.
The Arlington Police Department posted about their adorable rescue on Facebook. They also got in a good dig at the fire department!
”Who says Firefighters are the only ones who rescue kittens? (Yes…. we didn’t need a ladder on this call….) While being dispatched to an unrelated call at TJ Maxx, the manager informed Officers Adkins and Hilliard about two kittens stuck underneath the back of a car in the parking lot. Both kittens rescued and will be going to a great home!”
