“The feline rescue Olympia was able to get his arm over the rear differential of the vehicle and grab hold of the kitten safely,” said Fitting.
“We took a lot of the shielding off from the underside of the vehicle, and my partners here ended up reaching in there and grabbing the cat this morning,” said Green.
In a tweet, officials wrote, “Thankfully the kitten was a lot slower and less agile than Isaac and crews were able to make a successful rescue.”
Officials said the kitten was a stray, but Yiadom ended up keeping the furry visitor.
