A litter of four kittens was rescued from the extreme heat by two caring law enforcement officers who discovered them in a box at the side of a road in South Florida. The temperatures of last Thursday hit 91 degrees (32.8 degrees C).

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office wrote via Facebook: “At 2:46 this afternoon, Captain Keith Day and Deputy Justin Adams were patrolling in the area of Santa Maria Dr. and S. Tamiami Trail. Captain Day saw a cardboard box off to the side of the road. Inside the box was a litter of kittens that had been abandoned. The kittens are currently enjoying the comfort of Captain Day’s car (and air conditioning) as they await the arrival of Lee County Domestic Animal Services.”

All four kittens have been placed in foster care. They were a bit shy and “hissy” when they arrived in the shelter, but they appeared to be healthy.

The kittens are 3-4 weeks old and will be put up for adoption when they are ready.

Baltimore police officer Jon Boyer who adopted the kitten he rescued, has pledged to protect and serve whether you’ve got two legs or four paws.

Boyer found a little stray and brought her into the shelter. A few hours later, he came back and adopted the kitten who became one of Boyer’s three on-the-job rescue kitties. [Full story]

Boyer continues protecting and helping lives of humans and our furry friends in the city of Baltimore.

This is Penny one of the kitties Boyer and his partner officer Brian Dreitlein recently rescued. Dreitlein wrote: “We found her on the 1900 block of Pennsylvania Ave. She sat on his shoulder and looked out the window the whole car ride to BARCS (Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter).” Boyer hopes to find the kitty a new home. “If she didn’t get adopted I’m probably going to take her,” he said.  (Facebook)

This tiny kitten had a rough start in life, but was saved by kind people and eventually found love and a forever home thanks to police officers at Tampa Police Department.

“This cute kitty was tossed from a car to a panhandler on the corner. He flagged down an officer for help. But don’t worry, one of the responding officers is keeping the kitten,” said Tampa Police Department on Facebook.

A teeny black kitten owes his life to a police officer Daniel Humphrey after being rescued from an abandoned home in Wilmington, Delaware.

Several kittens they found didn’t make it, and then Officer Humphrey heard a faint kitten cry and started searching. “We were just looking, looking, looking and couldn’t find it,” he said. They looked through the scattered clothes, under the furniture and even went through the garbage.

Then they heard another sound. “If he didn’t chirp, we wouldn’t have found him. Finally, we found this little guy sitting behind a door next to a shoe… hidden away.” (delawareonline)

The tiny kitten was just skin and bones and covered with fleas. Humphrey placed the kitten in a laundry basket with some clothes and rushed him to the Faithful Friends Animal Society.

The rescue kitten was estimated to be about 3-4 weeks old and was in extremely critical condition. If not for officer Humphrey, the little one wouldn’t have survived. “We started getting the fleas off him right away… His lips and tongue were white, but we took him to Longwood [Veterinary Center in Kennett Square, Pa.] and they saved his life with a blood transfusion,” said Jane Pierantozzi of Faithful Friends Animal Society.

“Thanks to Officer Humphrey. He’s a hero… We’re very proud of him and the Wilmington Police Department for this.” They named the little kitten “Little Humphrey” after his rescuer.

Humphrey said he just did what any officer would. “I’m not the hero here. Faithful Friends is the hero.” All he wants now is “for Little Humphrey to get adopted and have a good home.”

A kitty got caught in traffic, but thanks to a Garland police officer and his quick actions, the kitty was saved and unharmed.

Paul Clark, a motorcycle cop spotted a tiny yellow kitten running across the street and climbing up the back of an SUV that was pulled over behind a truck.

Clark immediately informed the driver of the SUV about the cat, and tried to reach the kitten who by then had squeezed onto the top of the gas tank, out of reach (wfaa).

The officer directed the driver to slowly pull into the nearby bank parking lot. The two worked together to save the kitten.

“Officer Clark crawled under the SUV and loosened the gas tank enough to lower it. By this time, several people had gathered to watch the rescue attempt and an employee from the nearby bank could see the kitten on top of the gas tank. She was able to reach in and rescue the kitten while Officer Clark held the gas tank,” according to the statement released by Garland police.

The bank employee, Bianca, offered to adopt the kitten. “Officer Clark had one request of Bianca, name the kitten KIA, after the model of the SUV it was found under,” the statement read.

Real men love cats. A tiny stray kitten found a Baltimore police officer to be his human dad for life.

“Officer Boyer came to the rescue twice today. First when he came to the aid of a stray kitten and again, a few hours later, when he adopted him. (That now makes Officer Boyer a kitty dad times six.)” – Show Your Soft Side

Real men love cats. Tracy Glenn, a young police officer is the dad of two rescue cats Leia and Josie. “When he’s not out protecting and serving us humans, he’s at home serving his kitties like any good cat guy would do,” according to catster.

Glenn shares a strong bond with his two feline princesses. The cats love to sleep at the foot of his bed and sometimes just cuddle up with him for a nap.
