An NYPD officer not only rescued a kitten - he found it a new home!
Officer John Passarella is being hailed as a hero for helping pull a desperately meowing kitten from the engine block of a minivan in Brooklyn on Friday afternoon.
The five-year vet — who also works as a volunteer firefighter in Queens — was able to reach under the vehicle and get a hold of the frightened feline. He said the little critter was not more than one or two-months-old.
Passarella then helped find the kitten a new home. A fellow cop adopted the adorable animal and named it “Pazzy,” after its hero in blue.
