It was a purr-fect ending for one kitten who found itself in a sticky situation in Brooklyn this weekend.
Officers from the 69th Precinct responded to the intersection of East 86th Street and Avenue J on Sunday after receiving numerous 911 calls by concerned residents of a cat trapped inside the engine of a parked car, according to authorities.
Sergeant Joshua Rios and Police Officer Christopher Reiff arrived at the scene and Reiff knew the kitten was stuck inside the engine area of the Lexus and used a jack to lift the car to see where exactly the small feline was.
Reiff got under the car and was able to get the kitten free, police said. He then took the kitten, who was dirty, back to the 69th Precinct station house where he cleaned him up.
Photos shared via the precinct’s Twitter page show the officer washing the kitten in a bathroom sink.
According to police, the small cat was adopted by one of the officer from the precinct and “now has a great new home.”
