The kitten was incredibly scared and didn’t understand what was happening, but after about 20 minutes, Deputy Sletten was finally able to maneuver him out of the car. As soon as he was free, the kitten immediately latched onto his rescuer, so happy to finally be out of the cramped engine compartment. Luckily, the kitten was OK and wasn’t hurt at all during his ordeal, and was soon reunited with his worried family.
While rescuing animals may seem like an unusual task for a police officer, Deputy Sletten is no stranger to it. In the past, he’s rescued a deer stuck under a porch and a snake inside a post office — so it’s incredibly lucky that he was the one available to come out and help.
