Virginia police took to Twitter today to live-tweet one officer's heroic rescue of a feral cat family.
A female cat and her 13 kittens were left abandoned in a small cage when the Albemarle County Police Department was alerted to their presence. Because the department receives a whopping 250 animal control calls per month, officers don't typically respond to calls involving cats, unless they're sick or injured. However, Animal Control Officer Kim Maddox decided to make an exception for the stranded feline family today and gallantly came to their aid.
Someone had abandoned the cats to fend for themselves in this tiny cage.
