Police Officer Rescues Feline from Busy Road

Humans with badges help protect and serve the public. Sometimes, these duties include protecting and serving creatures with more than two legs. And that is what happened in Livonia, Michigan recently.

A police officer responded to a call about a cat who was trapped on a busy interstate freeway. When the police officer arrived, he met with the human who called in the trapped cat. The officer and the calling human knew they had to help the feline, otherwise, it was in real risk of getting killed by fast moving cars.

The officer had to think fast, and he did. He called in another unit, and they positioned their patrol cars to protect the feline. Then, they approached the terrified feline. They talked to the feline, hoping to calm her down. And when this worked, they were able to get the feline into one of their cars.

Police Officers Rescued Libby

Soon, the feline, who has been named Libby, went to the Michigan Humane Society. There, humans in white coats examined Libby. They learned she had an upper respiratory infection and treated her for it. She quickly recovered, and now Libby is available for adoption. This is very good news, furiends. I am glad Libby is safe.

The police department received many calls asking about the feline they saved. They recommend that people interested in Libby contact the Michigan Humane Society.

I do not like riding in cars, and I think I would hate being so close to them on the street. Libby probably dislikes car rides even more than I do after being exposed to so many fast moving ones and being defenseless against them! I am glad the police officers helped her, and we also need to give credit to the human who called them.

Hopefully Libby finds a home inside, away from cars, very soon!

Six Kittens Trapped Behind A Wall Rescued

Every now and then it’s easy for me to think that you humans are not very nice to us felines.  It was hard for me to write that story on Monday, for example, about humans who abuse animals.  And there’s the ear sticks and insulin shots a diabetic cat like me must endure.  But then I get to share stories with you about humans like the ones at Spots and Stripes and I also get to share with you this story.

Bagheera the Diabetic Cat is Glad These Humans Rescued Many KittensA human in Michigan called the Michigan Humane Society about six missing or trapped kittens.  One of the humans who works for that organization was dispatched to the home, and he determined that three kittens were trapped behind a wall in the house.  The only way to get the kittens out, he said, was to break apart the wall and reach them that way.

Now, I have seen my human doing minor repairs to things around our home.  Those things look like a lot of work, and I can only imagine how he would feel about breaking apart the wall.  He would not like it, but if it was the only way to save some kittens, he would agree to it.  It would mean a lot of work for him to fix it, but he would do it anyway.

And that is exactly what the human whose home the kittens were trapped in did.  She allowed the wall to be broken apart so that the kittens could be rescued.  The Michigan Humane Society was able to recover three kittens from behind the Bagheera the Diabetic Cat is Glad This Kitten Was Rescuedwall.  Unfortunately, one of them did not make it, but the other two did.  They were taken with their mother to the shelter at the Michigan Humane Society.

A few days later, there was another call.  The other three cats had been located, and they were in a box for the Michigan Humane Society to pick up.  These three kittens were reunited with their siblings and their mother and they started to nurse immediately.  Their mother cleaned them while they were nursing.

A human who is even nicer than my human, who takes care of a diabetic cat like me and who rescued two other cats, is helping the five kittens and their mother by fostering them.  When the kittens get older, they will be adopted out.

But none of this would have happened if it was not for the kind human who allowed the Michigan Humane Society to do what was needed to get the kittens out.
