It’s shocking how cruel some people can be to animals, but thankfully there are also kind people in the world willing to step up and give these creatures the love they deserve.
That was the case recently, after an officer responded to a case about a kitten who was thrown from a vehicle — and knew that fate had brought them together.
According to WHSV, a person in Harrisonburg, Virginia witnessed a kitten thrown from a vehicle. They took the poor kitten home to bathe it, but couldn’t keep the cat themselves.
So, Officer Timothy Rugg of the Harrisonburg Police Department responded to the call, agreeing to pick up the kitten and bring it to the local SPCA. However, the cat quickly became attached to her new human friend, crawling up and snuggling on his neck.
“She was hiding under a couch,” Officer Rugg told WHSV. “I reached under and got her. She immediately crawled onto my shoulder and perched onto it like a parrot and started purring.”
