A Virginia police department took to Twitter to live-tweet this amazing discovery and rescue.
A female cat and 13 kittens were left to fend for themselves in this tiny cage. Because the department receives over 250 animal control calls per month, they typically don’t respond to calls involving cats unless they are sick or injured. But Animal Control Officer Kim Maddox made an exception for this case.
The cats were left in the cage but it was not locked. We are still finding more in the area. #poltwt pic.twitter.com/d02iC7lDpc
