(Updated at 12:05 p.m.) An Arlington County Police officer rescued a kitten over the weekend.
The officer found the kitten in the engine compartment of a car in Clarendon and was able to coax her out and hold her until animal control arrived.
That earned her kudos from the Animal Welfare League of Arlington’s Facebook account. Via AWLA:
Thank you to Officer Ernesto from The Arlington County Police Department for saving this little kitten! Officer Ernesto found this little kitten (now named Grease Monkey) in a car engine in Clarendon. She was able to coax the kitten out and hold on to her until Animal Control arrived. Thank you Officer Ernesto!
The rescue happened early Saturday morning, after Officer Ernesto saw people peering into the hood of a car, at the corner of 12th Street N. and N. Garfield Street, and stopped to help.
“At approximately 2:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 10, Officer Ernesto was on routine patrol when she observed a group of individuals at the intersection of 12th Street at Garfield Street using lights to look into the hood of a vehicle,” an ACPD spokeswoman said. “Officer Ernesto stopped to assist what she believed was a disabled vehicle and later determined there was kitten stuck inside.”
