A Florida police officer earned a new feline friend last week while on patrol on U.S. Highway 441.

New body cam video from the Alachua Police Department (APD) shows officer Thomas Stanfield saving a kitten stuck in the middle of the busy roadway.

Cars were passing within feet of the small kitten before Stanfield made his move, the department said on Facebook.

Stanfield didn't act alone, according to police. A Mi Apa Latin Cafe truck driver stepped in by using his large semi truck to stop traffic while the officer rescued the cat.

"I just found a baby kitten in the middle of 441," Stanfield reported to his fellow officers.

The kitten was safely removed from traffic and has found a new home with one of the department's dispatchers, the department said in a Facebook post.
