WATCH: Lufkin Police Use Blanket to Save Kitten Falling From Tree

Recommended Posts

Officers from the Lufkin Police Department in Texas rescued a tiny kitten recently. Moreover, the Lufkin Police officers showed a bit of ingenuity, employing a blanket to safely catch the feline as it dropped from a tree branch. Also, body cam footage captured the entire rescue mission.

Lufkin Police Responds

According to a post on the Lufkin Police Department Facebook page, Officers Devin Trotti and Randy Stallard arrived on scene to find a kitten stuck 30-feet up in a tree. Prior to arrival, another kitten, presumably a sibling, had already fallen to its death. So the officers sprang into action.

The post goes on to say the rescue mission lasted 10 minutes. Also, in true MacGyver fashion, officers used crime scene tape and a blanket during the rescue. Footage shows the officers work in tandem to position a blanket beneath the kitten. Meanwhile, one officer shakes the branch, forcing the cat to drop free. Above all, the kitten lands safely into the soft confines of the field expedient blanket.

Officers named the kitten “Trotti” and transported the cat to the local Kurth Memorial Animal Shelter. The shelter immediately offered the kitten up for adoption, according to Lufkin Police.

A follow-up post on the Lufkin Police Facebook page stated: “CAT RESCUE UPDATE: We’re happy to report that ‘Trotti’ has been adopted! Thank you guys for helping us get the word out to find her a loving home. #trottisstillagirl #andtheyalllivedhappilyeverafter.”

The Lufkin Police clearly had some fun with this one, as they should. While headlines concerning law enforcement are often full of gloom and doom, the kitten rescue in Texas stands as a cheerful reminder that officers are out there trying to help in any way they can. Showing a bit of care and concern for a kitten, which ultimately led to it finding a home, helps us view cops through a different lens, a positive example of law enforcement serving their community.
