Grapevine police were part of an hour-long rescue of a very angry kitten from underneath a woman’s car on Sunday.
In a Facebook post, a woman said police rescued her from the “very angry feral kitten,” not the other way around.
According to Kimberly Dendy, whose post was shared on Grapevine police’s Facebook, someone else was trying to rescue the kitten when it got startled and ran underneath her own car.
An officer was passing by and Dendy enlisted his help to retrieve the cat, who was hiding behind her front wheel and then underneath her engine.

Dendy said in the post police called for backup three times for more supplies and help and it took three officers an hour to coax the kitten out.
Dendy said Officer Chuck Day was able to grab the kitten, who, based on photos from the incident, appeared very unhappy about his situation.
In the post, Dendy said, “This was all after my car was jacked up, my tire was taken off, my engine protector was removed, the under carriage thingy was removed, a gallon of water was poured in the engine, and all of the contents of my trunk exposed in the middle of the road.”
Grapevine police shared the photos and Dendy’s post, adding, “This will be hard to top, as far as police calls go today.”
