NORTH CAROLINA – It’s usually firefighters who are called in to rescue a cat in distress, but in Fayetteville, it was a police department worker who saved the day.
And now, that cute kitten has a new home.
Leo has literally kidnapped hearts around police headquarters. Annette O’Keefe, a police department employee, rescued Leo from a parked dump truck bed, and nursed the newborn back to health with lots of bottle feeding.
Leo pulled at Annette’s heartstrings, and she wasn’t the only one. Annette’s coworker April Riedel ended up adopting the precocious kitten Thursday.
“He is a survivor. He is an orphan, and he just needed a good family,” April stated.
“We run into a lot of different stuff here at work, and every once in a while you get these small opportunities to do something that makes you feel good,” Annette stated.
How did they come up with the name Leo? Leo stands for Law Enforcement Officer. This cutie will undoubtedly find himself right at home at police headquarters.
