The Richmond, VA Police Department congratulated four officers who used creative thinking to help get two cats down from a tree when a group of neighbors asked for their assistance. Did the cats think, “Hey, look … boxes!” when officers stacked boxy trash bins at the foot of a tree to lure them down? We can’t answer that, but the plan did the trick.

The Richmond Police Department will further demonstrate an appreciation of animals on Friday, Dec. 14, at the Shockoe Slip Fountain, where the officers and horses of the Richmond Police Mounted Squad as well as some of the officers and K-9s of the Department’s K-9 Unit will attend a festive Blessing of the Animals with seasonal music and atmosphere. The blessing will be performed by Reverend Karen Thompson of Thompson’s Border Collies to recognize working animals and celebrate the joy of companion animals at this special time of year. Gifts of pet food will be donated to Animal Adoption and Rescue Foundation (AARF).
