When a police officer from Virginia made a routine traffic stop, he spotted a tiny ball of fur running in the grass median, completely terrified.
Worried that the kitten might get hurt by incoming traffic, he stopped what he was doing and headed towards the kitten to its rescue.
Officer McGuire of Henrico Police Department made a traffic stop along Interstate 64 (Virginia). Soon after, he noticed a frightened kitten running through the center grassy median.
“Without hesitation, McGuire walked towards the kitten — careful not to scare it into traffic,” Henrico Police Department shared with Love Meow.
The kitten took refuge under a pile of straw. McGuire carefully parted the grass which revealed a black kitten. He grabbed the kitty with both hands and that’s when the little feline started to fight him off.
McGuire knew that the little one was very scared, so he bore the pain from the claws and teeth and calmly made his way back to his patrol car.
He took out a towel from the trunk and wrapped the kitten with it to help calm the kitty down. [Scroll down for video]
