Florida’s Orange County Sheriff’s Office shared the story of a kitten rescue at the scene of a traffic accident. Fortunately, the officers were on the scene because the helpless kitten needed help nearby in a storm drain. As they responded to the accident, they heard her crying.
Then, Corporal Pomerleau came to the rescue, and, as you can see, the adorable kitten with blue eyes was in good hands. Below, you can see Pomerleau and her colleague smiling with the kitten, which is just too cute.

Kitten in a Storm Drain
Below, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office shared the story.
“Just look at this face! Corporal Pomerleau was on the scene of a traffic crash at Constantine Road and E Colonial Drive when she heard this kitty in distress in the storm drain,” stated Sheriff’s Office on Facebook. “The kitten was saved, and the squad is looking after her until she can find her “fur-ever” home.”
A Furever Home
Soon afterward, they shared an update. This kitten was very lucky indeed!
”Well, that was fast! Kitty found a forever home with a member of our agency! A happy ending!”
Now, this kitten will have a happy life ahead thanks to the officers being at the right time and place.
“The newest Orange county pawfficer is adorable!” wrote one person in the comments.
Orange County Sheriff’s Office Saving Kitties and Puppies
Notably, Florida’s Orange County Sheriff’s Office has rescued many kitties and puppies over the years. Recently, the deputies, along with Animal Services, the Fire-Rescue Department, and Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando, teamed up to save cats and dogs from a massive fire.
Then, firefighter Brett Maneri adopted Mia, an orange marbled Tabby, one of the last cats rescued the day after the fire.
Kittens Saved by Orange County Deputies
In the past, Orange County Deputies Garfield and Arce rescued a kitten trapped in the grille of a car.
“Here, Kitty, Kitty! Look at this feisty little kitten two of our deputies rescued in a store parking lot on W. Colonial Drive. The tiny orange cat was trapped inside the grille of a parked vehicle. After being flagged down, Deputy Garfield (yes, like the cat!) Green worked with Master Deputy Gilberto Arce (pictured) and many concerned citizens to get the hot, scared kitten out safely. Deputy Green even bought a small tool set to help extract him. Thanks to everyone working together, the kitten is in good health.”
In another case, Deputy Copeland saved a lonely, starving kitten found covered in debris.
“While walking towards the front of Union Park Middle School, Deputy First Class Marla Copeland hears what sounds like a small kitten. She checks the area and finds the small kitten, behind a building, and covered in debris. The poor kitten was shivering and hungry. Staff fed it milk and placed it in an empty box. It was a hit with the staff and kids at the shelter. Good Job DFC Copeland!”
For another example of many, in 2019, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office shared these adorable pictures.
As you can see, what the world needs more of is caring and kindness for kittens and for everyone.
