Stallard and Trotti Cat Rescue

INCREDIBLE VIDEO: Officer Devin Trotti and Officer Randy Stallard encountered a kitten stuck roughly 30 feet up in a tree while on a civil standby Friday. Before officers arrived the kitten's sibling apparently fell to its death. :( This is the condensed version of their 10-minute rescue which involved crime scene tape and one of the blankets that our officers keep in their patrol units to give to the homeless. The kitten, a female now fondly named "Trotti," was taken to the Kurth Memorial Animal Shelter and is up for adoption at 1901 Hill St. in Lufkin. #holdmycrimescenetapeandwatchthis #noladdertruckneeded #heymeow #trottisagirl
