Texas Police Officers Rescue & Adopt Adorable Kittens Stuck Inside Car Bumper
The officers took them to a vet, who told them that the babies were around six weeks old.
ARLINGTON, TX — Two police officers in Texas got a shock when they were asked to help rescue two tiny kittens in distress.
After dealing with a shoplifting situation in a TJ Maxx store, Officers Adkins and Hilliard said a woman flagged them down and told them that the kittens were stuck under a car in the store parking lot, according to The Dodo.
They officers could hear the kittens crying, but could not find them — at least, not at first. “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 owner of the car advised she did not own a cat and had no idea how the kittens got in there.”
Eventually, Adkins was able to figure out the source of the sound and pull the kittens out from under the vehicle. The officers took them to a vet, who told them that the babies were around six weeks old.
After cuddling the kittens and feeding them formula, Officer Adkins decided to take two of them home. His new furbabies are healthy and happy, according to the department, and are settling into their new home.
Minton told The Dodo, “He thinks he may name them ‘TJ’ and ‘Max.'"
