[ARCHIVED] Two Kittens Rescued During Hurricane Dorian

09-04-19 kitties rescued

Two of our officers rescued two kittens who had gotten stuck between two fences on the beachside during Hurricane Dorian.

Body cam video can be found here.

Officers James Bissa and Russell Gibbins were called to the 600 block of Butler Boulevard (near North Wild Olive Avenue) around 7 p.m. last night.

A resident in the area directed them to the kittens, who were trapped between a wooden fence and a chain-link fence separating two properties.

It’s not clear how long they were stuck there but it does appear that they were on their own while Dorian was passing through the area. The kittens’ mother was not found by the officers.

Officer Bissa managed to pull the cats free by sticking his hand through the wooden fence and grabbing them.

Other than being wet and stuck, the kitties had no apparent injuries. 

Officers left the kittens in the care of the resident who called for help.
