Tampa, FL – A lone kitten, braving the lashing wind and driving rain of Hurricane Ian, was saved by two compassionate Tampa Police Officers. According to the police department, the officers were patrolling the streets during the raging Category 4 hurricane when they spotted the frightened feline huddled in the middle of Florida Ave.
The frightened kitten was plucked off of the street and placed into the patrol car and the officers transported her to the Veterinary Emergency Group. Within an hour, a family was found to take her in.
The family wanted to give their new pet a name that would remind them of the massive storm that she had been saved from. The police department explained:
They wanted to name the kitten #Ian, but after discovering that he is a SHE, they’ve named her 𝑺𝒕𝒐𝒓𝒎𝒊𝒆.
Kudos to everyone involved in saving little Stormie!
