Police rescued a tiny kitten that was stuck in a tree in Lufkin, Texas, and it was all captured on one officer’s bodycam.

Officer Devin Trotti and Officer Randy Stallard encountered a kitten stuck about 30 feet up in a tree while they were on civil standby duty.

In the video, the two officers set up under the tree with the blanket, and one officer yells, “Come on down, cat!”

The kitten jumps and the officers catch it with the blanket.

The kitten, a female now named “Trotti” after one of the men who saved her, was taken to a local animal shelter and is up for adoption.
