DULUTH, Ga. — A Georgia police department praised an officer who helped a family pick up their kitten from the vet.

On Thursday, Duluth Officer Heather McNaughton was called after a woman’s vehicle broke down in the middle of the road during rush hour, WAGA-TV reports. After helping the woman get the vehicle off the road, the officer saw that the woman, who had a child with her, was not having a great day.

The woman told McNaughton that she needed to pick up a kitten from the vet before she was penalized with late fees. McNaughton stepped in and drove the family to pick up their kitten just in time.
