Heroic British Cops Save Hamster From Clutches Of Cat
"Police in London said they rescued a hamster from a cat after it fell 12 feet from a window and bounced off the hood of a car.
London police said Constables Helen Hansen and Dave Kadwell spotted the hamster being chased by a cat in the Beddington neighborhood and waved their arms to ward off the feline, The Mirror reported Monday.
The constables chased the rodent until Hansen was able to trap it under a helmet."
If typical cops witness a hamster being chased by a cat, they will probably put their coffee and donuts down for a moment, and place bets as to how long it will take the cat to catch the hamster.
But these police officers, went beyond the call of duty, and intervened to save the hamster from the hungry feline.
Not only did they rescue the hamster, but they manage to locate its owner. The cops knocked on a house with a "beware of hamster" sign on the window, and the furry little creature was reunited with his owners: Milly 8, and Bradley, 11.
I thought it was cats who had nine lives; the hamster survived a precipitous drop, and a hungry cat.
Hats off to the coppers, they made Milly, Bradley and millions of animal lovers all over the world very happy.
