A roaming kitten who didn’t want to be caught caused quite the ruckus at an Arlington intersection Tuesday. 

Two Arlington police officers made an unexpected rescue after a driver flagged them down and explained that a kitten had ran underneath his vehicle while he was at the stoplight. Officer Austin Kidd could see that the kitten had wedged himself between the rear wheel and brake rotor and refused to come out.

Kidd and his partner Robert Phillips used the driver’s jack and lug wrench to remove the rear wheel, freeing the kitten. Once free, the kitten ran into the road and lied down. Kidd wasn’t able to approach the kitten as it was very aggressive and tried to bite him. 

While police waited for Arlington Animal Control to arrive, the kitten darted under another car that stopped at the light. Kidd stopped the driver until animal control arrived and successfully freed the kitten.

Animal control said the kitten didn’t appear to be injured, but may have had heat exhaustion and was dehydrated. The kitten was transported with animal control.
