For two days San Antonio Animal Care Services Officer Daniel White and crew members from the City’s Transportation and Capital Improvements Department did their best to encourage a two-month old kitten to come out of a traffic pole where it was stuck during recent storms.  The pole, which is metal and lined with low voltage wires, was a dangerous situation for the tiny captive.


Passersby who heard the cries of “Floyd,” as the kitten is now called having been named for one of the streets on the corner where he had holed up, alerted authorities to his plight.


This is how the City of San Antonio Animal Care Services post read:

Floyd’s Big Three Day (Mis)Adventure…

Abandoned at a busy intersection in San Antonio’s Medical Center area Memorial Day. Stuck in the hollowed middle of a traffic pole through storms. Saved by an ACS Animal Care Officer and a crew from the City’s Transportation and Capital Improvements. Recovering and looking for a foster at Animal Care Services.
