This week in Northland, the police were alerted to a strange noise outside a home late one night. They quickly responded and went out to investigate, but they were in for a surprise when they arrived.
Upon their arrival, they discovered that a ginger cat had an aluminum teapot stuck on its head. The police were able to rescue the cat without any harm and let it run away into the night.
This isn’t the first time that the police have helped a feline friend. Last December, a tiny kitten was rescued from an Auckland motorway. It was spotted huddling near the centre barrier in the northbound lanes, so the police stopped the traffic to rescue it.
Thankfully, the kitten seemed to have some road sense and was travelling in the direction of the traffic, making it easier for the officers to catch it. The kitten was taken care of by a kind 111 call-taker who brought it home.
It’s heartwarming to know that our police officers are always ready to lend a helping hand to all creatures, great and small!
