Mews and Nips: NYPD Cop Rescues Kitten and Finds New Home for Him


A Brooklyn kitten had a guardian angel in the form of an NYPD officer watching over him. John Passarella responded to a call about a kitten trapped in a car engine. After officers were unable to coax the kitten out, Passarella was eventually able to reach his arm into the engine block and free the kitten. The stray kitten was adopted by another NYPD officer and was named Pazzy for his rescuer. Someone from the NYPD snapped the adorable photo above. Read the full story in the New York Post.
