Eleven-year-old Logan Gleeson accepted the award after saving a five-week-old kitten when it got stuck in a vehicle's engine. Animal Services Officers Susan Kachik and Nicole Heflin presented him with the award as his family cheered him on. The kitten, who Gleeson named "Snake Eyes," is in foster care with Officer Kachik until he is old enough to be adopted.

Bless his heart! It is so good to hear stories like this after the horrible stories of what is done to harm animals! Iactually had this happen to me once. I was on the way to the store and pulling into the parking lot, I heard a feeble meow......I looked uder the car, and there was a little kitten who looked to be barely a month old in the wheel well.....with his tongue hanging out like he couldn't breathe. It was 101 degrees that day, and that little baby rode the whole 6 mile trip under that hot car and asphalt, hanging on for his life! How that tiny thing held on for 6 miles going 65 mph amazes me still! I got down on my stomach and got under the car, but he was in shock and terrified and wouldn't let me get him. It took me over 30 minutes to catch him. He was so traumatized it broke my heart. I got my son to get a bottle of water to cool him down, and brought him home.....and he has been the most pampered cat on the plane ever since (he even has his own miniature brass bed with a leopard print bedspread lol!) His name is Mr. Smoochy and I love him so much. I love happy endings!

I really needed to read a story like this one.
I had watched that video where a kid killed
two kittens with a vacuum cleaner.
Life is so precious and so many people
