RIVERVIEW, FL (WFLA) – Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Deputy John Kotfila got to help out a furry friend in need in the Tampa Bay area.

Deputy Kotfila rescued and comforted an 8 week old kitten after he rescued him from a storm drain in a neighborhood near U.S. 301 and Big Bend Road in Riverview.

It took a net, a towel, and lots of help from nearby resident Donnell Hill to get the kitten out of the drain.

Fortunately the kitten was not injured, only very wet and scared.

And there’s a good news ending to this story. The kitten was adopted by Sheriff’s Office Communications Dispatcher Heather Worsley-Kelly, but not before he got a front seat tour of the HCSO patrol vehicle.

And you might have guessed this one, his new name is”Stormy”! provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
