Purr-fect ending for kittens rescued from car engine by Dothan police officer

DOTHAN, Ala.-- A feel-good story for all animal lovers.

It was a "purr-fect" ending to a scary situation for a couple of kittens in Dothan over the weekend all thanks to Dothan Police Department Officer Adam Blackwell.

On Saturday, Blackwell responded to an animal services call at a home in Dothan and learned two kittens were stuck inside the engine of a vehicle.

They were believed to be trapped for several days.

Officer Blackwell removed several bolts from the car, detaching a plastic panel, eventually freeing the kittens.

"Nobody could find them and even our officer thought you know maybe, maybe not he couldn't hear them and eventually he heard them. So he took some things apart and rescued to kittens. Number one we never know what we're going to find, what situation they're going to find. We're here to help the community no matter," said Lt. Pepper Mock of the Dothan Police Department.

The kittens are reportedly doing fine and  have been re-homed!
