A little kitten in Kemah, Texas owes its life to the joint forces of the Kemah Police Department and Whataburger after being rescued from a drain hole.
On Friday, Oct. 21, Sgt. Barmore and Officer Staton responded to a call of a kitten in need of help. Both men crawled into opposite ends of the drain to try and rescue the cat, but nothing seemed to work. After a few failed attempts, the officers traveled to a nearby Whataburger and brought the kitten back a nice little snack. The delicious smell of the burger was enough to get the little kitten out to safety.
Now that the kitten is safe, Animal Control is searching for the owners. If the owners don’t come forward, the Whataburger-loving cat has a few possible adoption optioned lined up. Both Sft. Barmore and a few Whataburger employees say they are considering adopting the kitten.
As a thank you for saving the kitten, Whataburger also surprised the Kemah Police Department with a free lunch of chicken strips and french fries.
The Kemah Police Department is no stranger to kind acts around their community. Back in July, a kind Samaritan paid for the lunch of a few officers who were dining at Saltgrass Steakhouse at Kemah Boardwalk. Once the KPD identified the Samaritan as 20-year old Travis Allen, a waiter of the Steakhouse, they worked within the community to raise money as a thank you.
According to KHOU, the KPD ended up raising $1300 for Allen. Their donation was double by Saltgrass Steakhouse, giving him a huge check that will go toward his college education.
