Published in Cats & Dogs News

(UPI) A pair of Virginia State Police troopers rescued a kitten that climbed into the engine compartment of a vehicle that stopped to help it.

Troopers said in a Facebook post that a driver pulled over to the side of Interstate 81 Exit 26 in Washington County to rescue a kitten at the side of the road, but the spooked feline darted into the vehicle's engine compartment.

The driver called for help and Troopers Wayne Strumbo and BJ Norris were dispatched to the scene.


"And folks think only firefighters rescue kittens," the post said.

The kitten was safely removed from the vehicle's engine and "everyone was happily back on their way," the state police said.
